Ministry of Steel to set up working group to monitor usage of steel
Increase in steel consumption will give impetus to economic activities
The Union Ministry of Steel has decided to set up a working group to monitor the usage of steel across the country.
A working group will be set up which will regularly monitor the steps being taken to enhance steel usage.
The ministry will have to identify opportunities and challenges in increasing steel consumption. The ministry has already discussed with key infrastructure ministries about more steel usage, and is engaging with various departments, state governments and other stakeholders.
The increase in steel consumption will give impetus to economic activities, help in improving environment, and provide employment opportunities.
