Global steel behemoth Tata Steel plans capital expenditure (capex) to the tune of Rs 8,500 crore on its India operations during the current financial year, the company’s Chief Executive Officer T V Narendran said.
In India, the focus will be on the Kalinganagar project expansion and mining activity, Narendran, who is also the Managing Director (MD) of Tata Steel, said to a private news agency during an interview.
Tata Steel is in process of expanding capacity of its Kalinganagar steel plant in Jajpur district of Odisha from 3 MT at present to 8 MT.
The steel major will also spend about Rs 12,000 crore on inorganic growth in India in the Neelachal Ispat Nigam Limited (NINL) acquisition, said Narendran.
To recall, Tata Steel’s wholly-owned subsidiary Tata Steel Long Products Limited (TSLP) acquired the Odisha-based one Million Tonne Per Annum (MTPA) capacity steel plant NINL for Rs 12,100 crore.
Tata Steel produces close to 20 million tonnes in India.
