"While Iron Ore price in international market is decreasing, the same in Odisha is increasing. Also the transporters are increasing the freight rate from time to time. This adds to the challenges faced by the steel industries in the state," Jindal told reporters here.
He requested the state government to intervene in the issue of increasing iron ore price and freight rate in Odisha.
Stating that there is scarcity of coal for steel industries in the state, Jindal said the premium for coal in e-auction by Mahanadi Coalfields Limited (MCL) goes up to 100 percent.
