“Going ahead, we will continue our efforts to harness renewable energy and set up an infrastructure to effectively reduce carbon emissions,” he said.

Imports from China

Subsidised and imported Chinese and Indonesian stainless steel continued to be dumped in the Indian market, the company said adding that this led to “reduced price levels” in domestic markets.

Imports from China and Indonesia are estimated to have risen by 147 per cent and 280 per cent, respectively in FY22. As a result, the share of imports rose to 36 per cent of demand during Q4FY22.

JSHL, said, it strategically upped the exports mix share during the quarter which “more than doubled” compared to Q4FY21.
