Sales of semi-completed alloy steel became up 729 in step with cent in June
Alloy and stainless-steel exports for the April to June duration, or Q1FY23 have visible a 36 in line with cent leap, yr-on-12 months, bucking the general trend of a dip in exports.

Other main markets covered the West Asian markets of UAE, at 27,5000 tonnes; whilst the us saw 29,2 hundred tonnes (nearlu 60 per cent of total finished steel) of exports in the class.
