RINL February turnover up 22% to Rs 1,465 cr
New Delhi: Rashtriya Ispat Nigam (RINL) has clocked 22 percent growth in revenue in February at Rs 1,465 crore despite its production getting hampered for four days during the month.

"Our sales volume of 3.93 lakh tonnes and turnover of Rs 1,465 crore are the best monthly performances in the current financial year," a company official said.

He said steel price had to be adjusted during the month due to sluggish demand and as a result of that, the increased turnover would not have much positive impact on the company's profitability.

Meanwhile, RINL's production got affected "significantly" due to the two-days nation-wide strike with a cascading effect of over four days as the units had to be throttled.

"This disturbed the growth momentum. However, growth in some areas could be achieved," he said.

Recording just a 4 percent growth in production, RINL produced 3.11 lakh tonne steel in February over the same month last year.

The subdued production is also because of Andhra Pradesh government's restriction in the offtake of power. The state government has already imposed Rs 80 crore penalty to RINL allegedly for drawing more power than permitted.

RINL generated 227 MW power for captive consumption in February, up 2 percent over the same month last year.
