Mumbai: Tata Steel Ltd, the world's No. 8 steelmaker by output, said on Monday that August steel sales at its Indian operations rose 25 percent from a year earlier to 492,000 tonnes.

The local operations contribute about a quarter of the group's total annual global capacity of 30 million tonnes, which includes Corus, Europe's second-largest steelmaker.

The strong performance came on the back of an 81 percent jump in sales of long products, used in construction, from a year earlier.

Saleable steel production in August rose by 14 percent from a year earlier to 526,000 tonnes, the company said in a statement.
