“JSPL’s strength lies in its dedicated team which is defying all odds and continues marching on the growth path. JSPL has now better raw materials security, which will add significant value to the company. One of our Australian coking coal mine is operational and we are expecting the first shipment in November 21. It will reduce our coking coal dependency significantly. JSPL has been shortlisted as preferred bidder for Kasia (Odisha) iron ore mine by Government of Odisha which will further enhance our raw material security. We are fully committed and believe in India growth story", said V R Sharma, Managing Director, JSPL in a statement.
