 Shri Sumit Deb, CMD, NMDC expressed satisfaction at the overall results and said, “We have realigned our strategy to focus on optimum utilization of resources. The various steps undertaken to reduce costs, improve output and maximize profitability have led us to bounce back after initial set back in Q1 due to COVID-19 pandemic and set new records in this quarter. We are positive that we will continue to excel with the growing raw material demand from the steel sector and create new benchmarks.”
