The Indian Steel Association (ISA), at its 18th apex committee meeting on the re-entry of four steel players gave the approval. Three of these, namely, Tata Steel Ltd., Tata Steel BSL Ltd (formerly known as Bhushan Steel), Tata Steel Long Products were from the Tata Group. The fourth is Bhushan Power and Steel Ltd which was recently taken over by JSW Steel Ltd.
The re-entry of three members of the Tata Group and Bhushan Power and Steel Ltd into the ISA fold, once again strengthens the vision of taking forward the Indian steel industry as a global leader acclaimed for its quality, productivity, and competitiveness. This in turn will help to contribute towards the government’s objective of an ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’.
Sharing his perspective on this announcement, Dilip Oommen, President, Indian Steel Association, said, “We are pleased to have Tata Steel, along with Tata BSL Ltd and Tata Steel Long Products, as well as Bhushan Power and Steel Ltd. back with us as part of ISA. This association over the years has played a pivotal role in addressing and resolving critical issues that impact our industry, and we are confident of building our collective voice and going from strength to strength. As an industry association, we remain fully committed to contributing to our honourable Prime Minister’s clarion call of making India self-reliant.”
Welcoming all four members into the ISA fold, Dr Bhaskar Chatterjee, Secretary General, Indian Steel Association, said: “We are delighted at this development. This strengthens ISA’s position as the principal voice of the industry, and we are confident that we will continue to play a transformative role in nation-building.”
