Sumit Deb, CMD of NMDC, said, “The last few months have been quite challenging for the entire industry due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation impacting the performance of all major producers. However this challenge was treated as an opportunity by us to accelerate our efforts towards stabilising the production and continuously improving our production processes. Going forward NMDC will strive to maximise cost efficiencies to improve its bottomline.”
