JSW Steel is pegging its capital expenditure (capex) for FY24 at Rs 20,000 crore as it plans to add 9 million tonnes (mt) to its current capacity. The capex is part of the Rs 49,000-crore spend that JSW had outlined over a three-year timeframe.

During the nine months of FY23, the company’s capex stood at Rs 10,707 crore against Rs 15,000 crore planned for FY23.

JSW had earlier envisaged a capex of Rs 20,000 crore for the current financial year.

But falling steel prices and slowing demand prompted JSW to calibrate it to Rs 15,000 crore after Q1.
