World’s largest Steel Maker ArcelorMittal, which had shelved its plans for a six-million-tonne per annum (MTPA) steel plant in Ballari at an estimated investment of Rs 30,000 crore two years ago due to lack of raw material linkage, has approached the Karnataka state government once again with a proposal to revive the project, Deccan Herald reported.
