Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL) supplied 35,000 tonnes of rails to the Indian Railways during July to October, a company official said Wednesday.
In July, the company had bagged 20 per cent of Rs 2,500-crore global rail tender floated by the railways, becoming the first private player to supply rails to the national transporter.
The order is to supply around 1 lakh tonnes of rails over a period of one year. “As on October 31, 2018, we have supplied 35,000 tonnes or 35 per cent of the order after RDSO (Research Design and Standards Organisation) approval.
It’s only three months and we have supplied more than one-third of the order,” N A Ansari, CEO, JSPL Steel Business, said.Read More
