India: Steel ministry identifies 38 high impact projects under PM Gati Shakti

The steel ministry has identified 38 high impact projects to develop multimodal connectivity and bridge the missing infrastructure gaps under PM Gati Shakti, an official statement said.

Planned expansion of railway lines, creation of new inland waterways, roads, ports, gas pipeline connectivity and airports/airstrips will result in creating much-needed logistics solution. This, in turn, will drive the steel sector towards achieving its targeted goals by 2030-31 as delineated in the National Steel Policy (NSP).

Gati Shakti, the national master plan for infrastructure development, was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in October 2021 with the objective to bring different ministries together and for integrated planning and coordinated implementation of infrastructure connectivity projects.

It will incorporate the infrastructure schemes of various ministries and state governments and will also leverage technology extensively including spatial planning tools.

Steel ministry onboards on PM Gati Shakti portal

In a recent development, the ministry has on boarded itself on PM Gati Shakti portal with the help of Bhaskaracharya National Institute for Space Applications and Geo-informatics (BiSAG-N).

A first layer of data has been created with uploading of geo-locations of all the steel plants of Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) under the administrative control of the steel ministry.

The geo-locations of all the mines of these CPSEs under the ministry are also in the process of being uploaded.

In future, there are also plans to upload other relevant attributes like production capacity, product details etc of all the units/mines.
