Balasore Alloys used up the entire quantity of 23,787 MT of Ores, for captive use, which was comparatively low by 17% in May’19 with respect to the previous month. Meanwhile, dispatches from IMFA were also low by 25% M-o-M. Misirlal Mines dispatched a total quantity of 10,525MT in May’19 which is low by 25% as compared to Apr’19. Misirlal Mines, IMFA and FACOR, they all used their whole quantity for captive use. B.C. Mohanty and Sons dispatched 8,193MT in May’19 out of which 4,905MT was used for Captive use.

SteelMint assessed that the decline in dispatches was a result of the lackluster Ferro Chrome Market. As compared to the previous year the total dispatches in May’19 from OMC remained stable.
