JSPL Becomes Regular Supplier for Steel Rails for Passenger Tracks
Jindal Steel and Power Limited announced that Indian Railways has granted regular supplier status to Jindal Steel and Power Limited for its 60 kg 880 Grade Prime Class A 90UTS steel rails, required in passenger tracks. Following the grant of the status, any agency of Indian Railways or its contractors involved in ongoing or new track laying projects can source this grade of steel rails from JSPL. The move follows Railway Design and Research Organization giving its approval for the standards and quality of the grade of steel rails produced by JSPL at its steel mill located in Raigarh.
Previously, JSPL had also received approval from Indian Railways to make supplies of its 1080 head hardened steel rails for metro projects across the country.
