Your Company holds significant investments in equity shares of JSW Steel Limited besides certain other investments in other Group Companies, therefore, the business prospects of the Company largely depends on the business prospects of JSW Steel Limited and the steel industry in general.

India, being the second largest producer of crude steel in the world, the prospects of Indian Steel Industry looks promising and the Indian Steel industry will play a pivotal role in steering India towards its goal of becoming a US $ 5 Trillion Economy. The domestic steel demand was spurred by the revival of numerous infrastructure and construction projects which got stalled due to the pandemic. In FY22, the production of crude steel and finished steel stood at 133.60 Million Tonne (MT) and 120.01 MT respectively. With an emphasis on the new age technological and industrial revolution the steel industry would be increasingly inter-alia using Artificial Intelligence, Industrial Internet of Things, Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality and machine learning for smart manufacturing. As per the NITI Aayog report, by 2030 India will become the worlds production centre for green steel and pave the way for the worldwide adoption of green steel. The government initiatives and policies like Public Private Partnership model and National Steel Policy, will help the country increase its crude steel production capacity. The Governments push for infrastructure led economic growth has continued to boost the domestic steel consumption. The Government has laid out a plan of investment to the tune of Rs 75,000 crore for 100+ critical transportation infrastructure projects that will connect ports, coal, steel, fertiliser, and food grain sectors across the first- and last- mile delivery network. This is expected to improve connectivity and transportation services across major points, in turn leading to a rise in demand for steel. The governments initiative to redevelop existing railway stations and the plan to provide a capital of Rs 2.4 lakh crore to Railways is likely to further scale the demand for steel. The Governments focus on infrastructure development with a proposed fund of Rs 10,000 crores will likely boost the domestic demand for steel in construction sector. The Central Governments call for Aatmanirbar Bharat has given a whole new dimension to the nation. Under the PLI scheme (Production Linked Incentive) the Ministry of Steel signed 57 Memorandum of Understandings for specialty steel and has approved a sum of Rs 6,322 crore for steel sector growth. The government has introduced several initiatives to boost steel production in India with an aim to reach 300 MT in production by 2030. The World Steel Association whose members produce 85% of the global steel, forecasted the world steel demand to witness a growth of 1.7% in the Financial Year 2024 and a healthy growth rate of 6.2% in the domestic demand of steel in India.

All these factors point towards a high growth potential for steel demand within India and a bright prospect for Indian Steel Manufacturer. As a result of which, the Company is looking forward for a sustainable growth in its Investee Companies in the coming years which would enhance the shareholders value. The Company expects to enhance its entrenched value for the benefit of the shareholders at large.
