4. Future Prospects

Your Company holds significant investments in Equity Shares of JSW Steel Limitedbesides certain other investments in other JSW Group of Companies therefore the businessprospects of the Company largely depends on the business prospects of JSW Steel Limitedand the steel industry.

The Indian steel industry accounts for about 2% to the country's GDP with an outputmultiplier of 1.4x and an employment multiplier of 6.8x. Being a core sector it alsotracks the overall economic growth and derives its demand from other sectors likeautomobiles consumer durables and infrastructure.

Steel demand remained subdued in FY 2020 largely due to lower consumption fromconstruction auto infrastructure real estate and manufacturing industries. Further theslowdown in the government's infrastructure investments and credit tightness due toCOVID-19 containment measures impacted its demand and consequently weighed on pricing.However the steel industry has seen major investment in the recent years.

FY 2021' also witnessed the successful auction of 20 iron ore blocks in India withcombined reserves of 583.1 MnT.Further the Odisha government also auctioned 22 iron oremerchant mines of which 19 were auctioned at a premium of 91-154%. India is looking tomodernize expand and accommodate the aspirations of a growing population throughurbanization and industrialization. Thus steel consumption growth is expected to rise onaccount of government expenditure on infrastructure and manufacturing in the long run.

The infrastructure industry accounts for 9% of total steel consumption in India and isexpected to increase to 11% in 2025-26. The Dedicated Rail Freight Corridor (DRFC) networkexpansion will also enhance the demand for steel. The Oil and Gas sector is one of thelargest end users of steel and with the expansion of city gas distribution network thedemand for steel will also increase.

With the 'Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan'the Government has urged all the stakeholders inthe steel industry to come together and utilize only domestically produced steel.Additionally the global tendering of government purchases up to Rs.2 billion were waivedoff hence widening the protection shield for MSMEs from the competition. The Ministry ofSteel is facilitating setting up of an industry driven Steel Research and TechnologyMission of India (SRTMI) in association with the public and private sector steel companiesto spearhead research and development activities in the iron and steel industry at aninitial corpus of US$ 30 million. The Ministry of Steel has suggested three models forstates to implement setting up a greenfield unit for steel with a capacity of over 4 MnT.The greenfield investments will enable the Ministry of Steel to achieve its 160 MnTdomestic steel consumption target by 2024-25.

The Steel Scrap Recycling Policy aims to minimize imports preserve resources and saveenergy and is compliant with Rs.6R' principles of Reduce Reuse Recycle RecoverRedesign and Remanufacture. Further National Mineral Development Corporation (NMDC) isexpected to invest US$1 billion on infrastructure in next three years to boost ironproduction.

All these above factors point towards a high growth potential for Indian steel demandwithin India and a bright prospect for Indian Steel Manufacturers. As a result of whichthe Company is looking forward for a sustainable growth in its investee Companies in thecoming years which would enhance the shareholders' value which in consequence expected toenhance its entrenched value for the benefit of the shareholders' at large.
