NINL, a Joint Venture Company of MMTC, IPICOL, OMC, NMDC and others set up a 1.1 MTPA Integrated Steel Plant at Dubri, Jajpur in Odisha. The company acquired the mining lease for captive production of iron ore in January 2017. NINL received permission for merchant sale of iron ore for one million tons per year for two years to augment the iron ore production in the state and meet the expenses of the company.

Commenting on the developments, Deb said, “Iron ore mining by NINL will not only ease ore scarcity in the state but will go a long way in eliminating the financial constraints faced by NINL. NMDC extends full support to the NINL team in their new endeavour.”
