Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], April 8 (ANI): JSW Steel on Thursday reported crude steel production of 4.19 million tonnes in the fourth quarter (Jaunuary to March), marking a growth of 6 per cent year-on-year.
In the same period last fiscal, it had reported production of 3.97 million tonnes. In Q3 FY21, the crude steel production totalled 4.08 million tonnes.

The company said even though average capacity utilisation improved from 66 per cent in Q1 to 93 per cent in Q4, the crude steel production for FY21 was lower by 6 per cent mainly due to disruption in production caused by the outbreak of Covid-19.

It is the only Indian company ranked among the top 10 steel producers in the world by World Steel Dynamics for the last 10 consecutive years. (ANI)
