JSW Steel Q3 consolidated net loss widens to Rs 74 cr

The company had produced 8.05 lakh tonnes (LT) crude steel in January 2012.

"The production was impacted in January 2013 due to poor quality and insufficient availability of iron ore. The restrictions imposed by Odisha government on movement of iron ore to other states have further restricted the availability of ore to Salem plant," it said.

The production of long products declined by 3 per cent to 1.46 LT in January from 1.51 LT in January 2012 while the output of flat products declined by one per cent to 5.89 LT from 5.95 LT in January 2012.

Flat products are used for consumer durables and fast moving consumer goods sector, while long products are meant for the construction sector.
