Jindal Steel and Power Ltd has secured long-term coal linkage of 0.5 million tonnes per annum for its sponge iron units.

“The company has secured long-term coal linkage of a total quantity of 0.5 million tonnes per annum for the next 5 years in the recently-concluded coal linkage auction under sponge iron sub-sector conducted by Coal India Ltd,” Jindal Steel & Power Ltd said in a regulatory filing today.
