Amethi based Jagdishpur steel processing (SPU) unit of SAIL was recently dedicated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the nation.  

 
SAIL has started this unit to supply strong and value-added TMT rebars in the region including Uttar Pradesh. The TMT mill of Jagdishpur unit has an annual capacity to produce 1.5 lakh tonnes of TMT. SAIL has also planned to start the production of crash barriers and corrugated sheets from this SPU. The steel giant has invested Rs 92 crore in the erstwhile Malvika Steel which is revived into this unit.
 
On this occasion, Modi said, “the commencement of this SPU will not only create job opportunities for people of the region but will also fulfill the steel requirements of the region as well as country."
 
SAIL Chairman Anil Kumar Chaudhary said, “the trial production from the unit’s TMT Bar Mill has begun and by end of April this year, after getting BIS certification the commercial production will also kick off. TMT bars in sizes of thickness ranging from 8 mm to 25 mm will be produced and supply TMT to the area.”
 
As per the National Steel Policy 2017, SAIL is focusing on increasing the steel consumption in rural areas. Taking initiative towards this, SAIL is setting up steel processing units in those remote areas where there is a good chance of steel demand and consumption. And through these units, SAIL is also increasing its value-added steel products so that such requirements of rural areas can be addressed. Jagdishpur will prove to be a fruitful step towards this.
 
There are provisions for TMT bar mill, crash barrier plant, and corrugation sheet unit in the Jagdishpur steel processing unit. And the trail production from TMT Bar Mill has already started. The market assessment for the demand of crash barrier and corrugated sheets in this area has already started.
