JSW Steel shines on planning to levy surcharge on sale of steel products

The BSE group ‘A’ stock of face value Rs. 1 has touched a 52 week high of Rs. 776.50 on 06-Aug-2021 and a 52 week low of Rs. 299.75 on 29-Oct-2020.

The promoters holding in the company stood at 44.09%, while Institutions and Non-Institutions held 20.74% and 35.17% respectively.

JSW Steel is planning to levy a surcharge on the sale of its steel products to its long-term OEM (original equipment manufacturer) customers to offset the rising input cost. The company will be the first company to introduce the concept of surcharge to the domestic steel market.

There is huge pressure on the cost of production. Cost of per tonne steel production went up by 19 percent or Rs 6,600 per tonne quarter-on-quarter in July-September 2021. The concept of surcharge would be new to India but it is not new in the global markets.
