India: No Bids Received in SAIL Pig Iron Auction

Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL) - a govt. owned steel producer conducted auction for around 6,100 MT steel grade pig iron today from its Rourkela Steel plant (eastern India). The auction received weak response as entire offered quantity remained unsold.

As per sources, in today's auction the company has kept base price similar to last auction at INR 23,500/MT (USD 327) ex-plant, Rourkela.

Prior to this, the company conducted auction on 11th Nov'19, in which close to 3,300 MT (80%) material got booked by local traders & mill owners at a base price of INR 23,500/MT ex-plant, Rourkela.
