Express News Service quoted Mr D Datta, AGM Institute for Steel Development and Growth, as saying “In India we have good quality steel and very recently India has become the second largest producer of steel, surpassing Japan. Now, the government’s target is to reach production of 300 million tonne of steel by 2030 from about 100 million tonne now. Increase in production means there should be increase in demand.”

Delivering the keynote address at the seminar, ‘Why steel?’, organised by Steel Scenario, in association with the Union Ministry of Steel, Mr Datta said that “India is transforming from a developing state to a developed state. There is now upsurge of construction activity. It requires a lot of investment in infrastructure sector, including housing.”

Conventional RCC constructions are quite popular because of various reasons, but for steel it is mostly confined to industrial structures. However, RCC structures having expectancy of 70 years develop small cracks or swelling on plaster in the structure after 35 or 40 years, he said.
