The Steel Ministry is working out a detailed plan for developing a steel fabrication cluster around the Bhilai Steel Plant in Chhattisgarh.

Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister of Steel, Petroleum & Natural Gas, chaired a meeting through video conferencing with officials from the Ministries of Steel; Road Transport and Highways; Railways, INSDAG, SAIL and steel fabricators from Bhilai to firm up the contours of this plan.
