Plans to revive VISL

Special Correspondent

BANGALORE: The State Government has decided to revive Visvesvaraya Iron and Steel Ltd. (VISL), in Bhadravati, which is currently facing shortage of iron ore following the closure of mining by Kudremukh Iron Ore Company Ltd. (KIOCL) in Kudremukh region.

VISL is currently managed by Steel Authority of India Ltd. (SAIL) and the iron ore was being supplied from National Mineral Development Corporation Ltd. (NMDC). SAIL purchases iron ore by paying Rs. 3,000 a tonne to the NMDC. V. Dhananjay Kumar, Karnataka’s Special Representative in New Delhi, told presspersons here on Wednesday that the Government had permitted mining in Chitradurga and Tumkur districts. However, a private mining company had filed a writ petition in the Delhi High Court and obtained stay orders for mining iron ore in those districts.

The Government had urged Union Law Minister M. Veerappa Moily to provide necessary legal support to end the legal dispute, which would enable SAIL to supply iron ore to VISL from Tumkur and Chitradurga districts, Mr. Kumar said.
