India to be net steel exporter: Dharmendra Pradhan

Addressing the first Chintan Shivir, Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas, and Steel, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, stated that India is going to be a net exporter of steel in the coming years. 

“…Currently we are importing 2 or 3 million tonnes of steel, in the coming two to three years, India will be a net exporter of steel for a long time to come…India has been purchasing crude oil and gas from so many countries but there is hardly any role of Indian exports in developing the infrastructure there. Now we have started asking them to give a preference to Indian steel companies for meeting their needs,” the minister said.
