“We are proud of our team for producing 7.51 million tonnes of steel in the financial year 2020-21 marred by the global pandemic. This remarkable growth during the most challenging time has been possible due to our firm belief in the India growth story, our focus on creating opportunities in adversity and the dedication of each and every member of the JSPL family,” said JSPL Managing Director V R Sharma.
