About Steel Authority of India

History of SAIL

Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) traces its origin to Hindustan Steel Ltd, set up on January 19, 1954. Hindustan Steel (HSL) was initially meant to manage only one plant that was coming up at Rourkela. Eventually, the Bhilai and Durgapur steel plants were also transferred to HSL in 1957, beginning its journey. In 1972, the government wished to build a holding company that could manage inputs and outputs under one umbrella. This process led to the establishment of the Steel Authority of India Ltd. The company was incorporated on January 24, 1973, with an authorised capital of ₹2,000 crore. It was made responsible for managing the five steel plants in Durgapur, Bhilai, Bokaro, Rourkela and Burnpur, plus the Alloy Steel Plant and Salem Steel Plant. In 2001, SAIL entered into a joint venture with NTPC to form NSPCL for captive power generation. In 2010, SAIL became a Maharatna company, and in 2019, the company launched its new branded TMT bars, SAIL SeQR. In 2015, the company won the contract to supply rail to the railway expansion project in Iran. In 2021, SAIL launched its "SAIL Vision 2030", which set the target for its crude steel production capacity to 50 million tonnes per annum by 2030. The company has also shown significant effort towards launching new and improved versions of steel such as 'Duplex Stainless Steel', Ultra Low Nb Structural, etc.

The company increases or decreases the proportion of the production of any of these products based on the changing market conditions. For example, if the price of iron ore decreases, then SAIL may choose to focus its production efforts elsewhere and wait for the iron prices to jump back.
