Falling prices, surging imports hit SAIL's third quarter (UPDATED)

Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) registered a growth in production of Hot metal, crude steel and saleable steel by 2%, 4% and 14% in third quarter of FY'16 over the second quarter of the current year. SAIL also registered a 6% growth in sales volume over the previous quarter at 2.906 million tonnes. Simultaneously, the techno-economic parameters for the third quarter registered growth. There was a 4% growth in BF productivity and 6% growth in continuous casting in the current quarter compared to the previous quarter. However, the Company incurred a net loss of Rs 1529 crores for the third quarter of FY'16 as against a net profit of Rs 579 crores over the third quarter of FY'15, primarily due to a 24% decline in Net Sales Realisations over the corresponding period last year. Sales were adversely impacted by huge surge in imports of low priced steel. Global Steel prices have registered a steep fall over the last year falling from around $460 to $280 mainly due to slowing Chinese consumption which is leading to oversupply of cheap steel into the market. Imports into India are at an annualized rate of 12 million tonnes, which is 20% up over a very high base of FY' 15 when they had surged by 75% over the previous year. The domestic market continues to suffer from the rising imports particularly from China, Japan & Korea at prices which are much lower than the domestic cost of production, affecting the margins of steel producers operating in India. Chairman, SAIL, P K Singh said 'the global scenario is very challenging and demand-supply imbalance resulting in price adjustments is hurting the domestic steel industry. We are focused on ramping up production from our new units and are adopting cost efficient strategies to improve our NSR. The recent favorable policies announced by government and its concerted efforts to enhance infrastructure spends in viable sectors will improve the domestic demand and provide some relief to the Indian steel industry.'

'Supreme Court on civil services exams reforms'

The Division Bench of Supreme Court partly upholding a decision of Kerala High Court, has held that " The Public Service Commissions (PSCs and UPSC ) are within purview of the RTI Act and are bound to provide scanned copies of answer sheets of the written test, copy of the tabulation sheet and other information sought by a RTI applicant under under RTI Act, 2005 ". No doubt, this is a landmark step towards transparency. The fiduciary relationships between the Commissions and Examiners remains protected. Thank God, re-valuation of answers (both Objective and Open-ended) is not ordered. Even a totaling mistake in the answer books could upset or even render the entire results null and void. But, the decision is bound to throw up immeasurable workload on PSCs, UPSC and cognate recruitment bodies. No one could or should prevent the failed or even successful candidates from seeking the desired information and /or documents. Entropy will continue to increase in the system. The revolution of rising expectations will follow. DoP&T is expected to take the call.

Suggestion for Finance Minister for budget

Since most of the senior citizens construct their houses for getting regular income in their old age, the present limit of monthly rent of Rs 15,000/- (annual rs.1,80,000/-) for not deducting tax at source is very low as compared to the annual exemption limit of Rs3,00,000/- for senior citizens. it will give some relief to the senior citizens if the limit for non-TDS from rent is equated to the exemption limit for senior citizens or non-senior citizens.

Seeking copy of Caste Certificate of an officer

Appellant sought a copy of Schedule Tribe (ST) certificate of a particular officer under the RTI Act, on the basis of an assumption that it might be fake. The PIO replied that SC certificate was not enclosed to the service book of the officer. The Central Information Commission (CIC) asked the appellant whether the appellant is having any basis to his suspicion about the ST certificate and about his interest in seeking these details, but the appellant could not convince the CIC. The CIC observed that the appellant had been heard earlier by it in several appeals. The CIC commented that the appellant is a cantankerous misuser of RTI and does not deserve any sympathy or information, as there is no public interest. The appellant is wrecking vengeance against the authority and officers for taking stern action against his misconduct. The CIC admonished him for misuse of RTI. The CIC ruled that the Public Authority can reject his RTI applications about inquiry and inquiry officers as that would impede the entire process of inquiry.


There is no specific provision in the RTI Act regarding rejection of an application for alleged misuse of the RTI Act. However, the CIC has repeatedly come to the aid of the PIOs in cases of harassment by repeated filing of applications.
