All steel whether produced from ore, billets, pellets or melting of scrap would be allowed to be used for National Highways construction

Nitin Gadkari – Union Minister of Road Transport & Highways:

In continuation to our effort to reduce costs through innovation, all steel whether produced from ore, billets, pellets or melting of scrap would be allowed to be used for NH construction as long as it meets the standards required for specific grades of steel.

The steel proposed to be used would be tested in NABL accredited laboratories as a third party check before source approval.

With this step, the supplier base for steel used in the construction of national highways would be enhanced leading to more competitive and better price discovery by the markets.
