The stellar performance during July this year follows a similar one during the prior month, when the sales had hit record. The improved performance was mainly as a result of strategic marketing efforts implemented during the quarter. The robust cash collection efforts by the company have led to drastic cut in borrowings.

Anil Kumar Chaudhary, Chairman, SAIL noted that the company continues to remain focused on reducing its borrowings further. The company has been able to service the special requirements of various sectors including railways and defence, amidst challenging situations on account of the pandemic.

The company reported net profit of INR 2,021.54 crore in FY’20, marginally down from the prior fiscal.
