Cmeri Bags The Sail Award For The Second Consecutive Year

  For the second year in running, CMERI bagged the prestigious SAIL Award for the paper entitled Strategies to make Indian Steel Industry Globally Competitive. The paper, authored by Dr. G.P. Sinha, Director, CMERI, Sri D.K. Bagchi and Sri U.C. Mukherjee portrays the opportunities Indian steel producers have in terms of producing globally competitive finished steel products through optimised operations and optimised blend of input. The study further works out the methodology for deriving the optimum productivity levels based on the fundamental principles and indicates the areas where strategies at the plant level and at the national level need to be evolved.
