New Delhi - India's crude steel output remained almost flat at 8.662 million tonne (MT) during April 2019, according to official data.

“Crude steel production stood at 8.662 MT in April 2019, up by 0.1 per cent over April 2018,” the report said.

State-run Steel Authority of India Ltd, Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Ltd along with private firms Tata Steel, Essar Steel, JSW Steel, and Jindal Steel and Power produced 5.082 MT and the remaining 3.58 MT came from other producers, it added.
