SAIL has claimed that it has supplied 50 per cent steel for the construction of The Statue of Unity, the world’s tallest statue of Indian independence movement leader Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. The 182 meters-tall statue was unveiled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on October 31.

 
Out of the total 24,000 metric tonnes (MT) steel required for construction of this 182 meters tall statue, SAIL has supplied around 12,000 MT of steel.
 
The total quantity of steel supplied by SAIL includes reinforced steel like TMT bars as well as structural and plates.
 
Being a marvelous work of art, this statue which is 100 times taller than a man’s average height has viewing galleries / observation deck at 153 meters at the chest level that can accommodate up to 200 visitors at one go and the view for that height opens onto the expansive view of the dam and environs.
