○Final call on strategic divestment of SAIL units by September




【New Delhi】The government is likely to take a final call on strategic disinvestment of three SAIL units by September, and due diligence is already on for the same.
 While the government in-principle had approved strategic disinvestment of SAIL's Bhadravati, Salem and Durgapur (alloy steel plants), modalities are yet to be worked out.
 "We hope that within 6-7 months, we would be in a position to take a call on whether to disinvest or not," an official said.
 On the other hand, a green panel has recommended environment clearance (EC) to state-owned steel major SAIL for construction of a pit head coking coal washery in its Tasra Coal Block in Dhanbad, Jharkhand.
