Jindal Steel and Power (JSPL) has posted a strong recovery in Steel sales sequentially in December 2021. The company has reported steel sales of 6.85 lakh tonnes, up 27% Month on Month (M-o-M).
JSPL’s Steel sales would have been higher but for the impact of the non-availability of railway rakes for the third consecutive month. Steel sales of 1.82MT in Q3FY22 were also constrained due to limited rake availability and unseasonal rains in several states. Exports accounted for 28% of Steel sales in December 2021 and 23% for the quarter.
Besides, the company has reported steel production of 5.904 million tonnes as of December 31, 2021, which is a 9% rise as compared to last year for the same period.
