India has already hit the halfway mark of 160 mnt of the target of 300 mnt of steel production capacity by 2030. Where do we move from here in the coming seven years? This premier event seeks to address the key issues in the Indian iron ore, coal and IF-route steel making segments, and also throw some light on the way forward. Richly endowed with minerals, especially iron ore, Chhattisgarh is the third-largest steel producing state in India and contributes around 12% of the country’s crude steel production. Chhattisgarh is home to 10% of India’s pellets and 20% of sponge iron production, and thus plays an important role in India’s growth story.
