The government of India owns around 75% of the company’s stock and has voting authority over the company. However, because of its ‘Maharatna’ status, SAIL has tremendous operational and financial autonomy. On January 24, 1973, the Steel Authority of India Limited was established. The Ministry of Steel and Mines developed a policy statement to help the industry build a new management model. The policy declaration was delivered before the Parliament on 2 December 1972.
The idea of forming a holding company to control inputs and outputs under one roof was conceived on this basis. Steel Authority of India Limited was formed as a result of this. At Bhilai Bokaro, Durgapur Rourkela, Burnpur Alloy Steel Plant, and Salem Steel Plant, the corporation was given responsibility for managing five integrated steel factories. SAIL International Limited was founded in 1974 with the goal of coordinating export and import operations.
Durgapur Alloy Ispat Limited, Bhiali Ispat Limited, and Rourkela Ispat Limited were founded as wholly-owned subsidiaries of the company in 1976 to take over the company’s ongoing business of Alloy Steel Plants, Bhilai Steel Plant, and Rourkela Steel Plant, respectively. In 1978, the corporation was reorganized as an operational company. The Salem Steel Plant, located in Salem, Tamil Nadu, was established in 1982. Several technical upgrade projects began in 1985, the most prominent of which was the conversion of open-heart furnace number 10 to a twin-hearth furnace.
The plant’s 4 million tonne expansion program saw all Phase-I units commissioned a year later, in 1986. In the converter shop, a vacuum arc-degassing equipment was installed, and a second normalizing furnace was connected to the plate mill. By purchasing 60% of the company’s shares in 1988, Visvesvaraya Iron and Steel Company Limited became a subsidiary. A Blast Furnace Bell-less Top Charging System was also installed at Bhilai Steel Plant. The corporation began a modernisation initiative in 1990 to enhance and technologically upgrade the factory. The plant was planned to have a crude steel capacity of 1.9 million tpa after it was modernized.
