In addition to the primary steelmaking capacity expansion, the project includes the development of downstream rolling and finishing facilities that will enhance AM/NS India’s ability to produce value-added steels for sectors including defence, automotive and infrastructure. The expansion project, which started in October last year upon receipt of environment permitting, will create more than 60,000 jobs.
