SAIL to hold series of workshops to boost rural steel consumption

In a bid to boost domestic steel consumption, state-run Steel Authority of India (SAIL) has decided to hold a series of workshops in rural areas to create awareness among various stakeholders about use of quality steel products in construction activities.

At the first of the 100 proposed workshops held last week in Haryana's Rewari, SAIL urged masons and steel dealers to do quality check to avoid use of low-grade steel in building houses.

The country's largest steel maker also encouraged elected representatives of villages such as gram pradhans and members of panchayats to raise awareness among villagers about the benefits of using steel in construction of homes.

Steel Authority of India (SAIL) is India's largest steel producing company. The company is among the five Maharatnas of the country's Central Public Sector Enterprises. The company has five integrated steel plants, three special plants, and one subsidiary in different parts of the country.
