JSW Steel Limited has reported its results for the Fourth Quarter and the Financial Year ended 31st March, 2020. JSW Steel said “The fourth quarter performance of the Company was marked by the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic and measures to curb its rapid spread. The Indian economy was severely impacted by the temporary closure of economic activities across the country after the announcement of the first phase of nationwide lockdown in the last week of March 2020. With a significant supply chain disruption and with a view to ensure safety of workforce across all areas of operations, the Company scaled down orsuspended production across all facilities around this time period. FY2019-20 turned out to be a year of two halves for the steel industry - with a weakened demand and subdued pricing environment in the first half of the year, and an improving business and consumer sentiment, with higher demand and pricing, during the second half of the year, deflated largely by the impact of COVID-19, especially, towards the end of March 2020.”
