CONFERENCE ON HOLISTIC MINING POLICY FOR INDIA

27 February 2020 at India International Center, New Delhi

Mining industry’s contribution to the GDP is in the range of 2.2-2.5% and any decision-making paralysis in this sector will have a bearing on a large number of user industries. There is a need to take a re look at the sectoral policies and work out a time-bound plan to avoid crises in the future.


The biggest challenge has been an impression that mining disturbs the environment. Modern technology has brought down the environmental impact of mining. The mining scandals that stalled decision making have been more of an issue of interpretation.


The new policy of the government is auctioning of mines, instead of the old allocation route. This is causing delays and decision-making paralysis. There is a need is to have strict timelines for conducting the auctions so that at every stage, there are enough lease rights to meet the requirement of minerals, especially coal and iron ore. Currently it takes around 3-4 years for miners to get all clearances including those related to environment. There is also a need to do away with the requirement of fresh environmental clearances when the lease changes hands due to auction or defaults.

Indian Steel Quality Standards Conference 2019

12th July 2019 | Shangri-la, New Delhi

METALOGIC 2ND ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

 

Quality  ~ simply better than the rest..

From jewellery to food products, cars to electronics, we all know that “Quality” is the key. Quality in the steel sector or even in any manufacturing industry is a measure of excellence or a state of being free from defects, deficiencies and significant variations. 

It is brought about by strict and consistent commitment to certain standards that achieve uniformity of a product in order to satisfy specific customer or user requirements.

Whether you are a small house owner, civil architect, manufacturer, construction company or involved the mining, oil and gas industry, it is vital to ensure you are purchasing and using steel products that are designed, manufactured and tested to comply with the correct standards for your intended use. Failure to do so can lead to safety issues, replacement costs, re-work, delays and hefty compensation claims.

Quality Compliance~ Ensuring quality by strict control..

The standards have no meaning until and unless they are adhered by the manufacturers for fulfilling the complete quality requirements as prescribed under the standards. The role of quality control comes in here. It involves verification of output conformance to desired quality levels. This means that the end solution is checked against customer requirements, with various checks being conducted at planned points in the development lifecycle. Technical teams will use, amongst other techniques, structured walkthroughs, testing and code inspections to ensure that the solution meets the agreed set of requirements. 

Confirming to the prescribed standards will allow businesses to ensure that metals and components supplied by different companies will be mutually compatible. Using standards also helps businesses demonstrate to regulators and customers that their products and services meet defined safety, quality, and environmental standards. Improved ability to meet legislative and regulatory requirements enables companies to develop competitive manufacturing capabilities and expand their market reach by ensuring conformity with various industry, military, aerospace, and automotive standards. Hence, without Quality 

Quality, Standard and Compliance ~next… Issues…!!

Quality Control involves the participation of numerous stakeholders from standard formation to implementation. Undoubtedly, there is always a section of stakeholders with a different understanding of the concept of quality assurance and control. Similarly, there is always a section which feels that there is no need of such standards and another section which feels that the imported quality is much superior than the existing Indian ones. 

This conference will try to find answers to many such issues, concerns and differences in understanding related to concept of quality and mandatory implementation. Some of the key issues which would be highlighted today are – 

• Mandatory QCO: Understanding the need from the ISP and alternate route steel producers

• How is it benefiting the society? 

• Is there a need to assess critical and non-critical application of QCO

• Is QCO leading to shutting down of smaller units in India

• Imported steel not complying to the QCO – criteria, availability volume & superior standards

• Technical know-how of standard steel production

• Strict Implementation, Strengthening Borders & Regular Checks 

• Where to draw the line – Exemptions

CONFERENCE ON MODERN LOGISTICS FOR INDIAN METALS & MINERALS

5th February 2018 | Shangri-la, New Delhi, India

The logistics sector is changing fast across the globe and logistics performance is envisioned as the key to economic growth and competitiveness.  The nature of demand, type of players, use of modern technologies, on-time deliveries, new risks, and policy concerns have given an entirely new dimension to logistics, which was earlier pursued as a simple movement of goods from one point to another. Logistics has an important bearing on the performance, economic development and integration of a country.


The role of logistics in the global economy is better recognized today than it was 10 years ago. Today, logistics encompasses regulation of services, sustainability, and resilience. It comprises an array of activities beyond transportation, including warehousing, material handling, packaging, timely dispatch, siding and terminal operations, and related data and information management.


Supply chain reliability is the key to logistics performance. In a global environment, consignees require a high degree of certainty as to when and how deliveries will take place. Reliability and speed are the foundations of a successful logistics network. Good logistics services also reduce the final cost of the product and transaction as a whole.


World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index which ranks every country on the basis of their customs, infrastructure, ease of arranging shipments, quality of logistics services, timeliness, and tracking and tracing; has ranked India 44th with a score of 3.18. In comparison, India’s major trading partners like Germany, US, European countries, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia are ranked better because of their superior logistics arrangements.


Indian steel and mineral industry which is looking at 300 million tons of steel production and approximately 200 million tons of finished steel movement, along with another 500 million tons of raw material movement has to be more competitive and efficient in time to come. Keeping in view the need of the hour to upgrade Indian logistics, Metalogic  organized this conference on Modern Logistics for Indian Metals & Raw Material Industry.
