The particulars of IISCO’s organization

IISCO Steel Plant(ISP), originally in private sector, was made a subsidiary of SAIL in 1977 and is now a full-fledged unit of SAIL after it amalgamation with SAIL with effect from 16.2.06. The integrated steel plant at Burnpur has the capacity to produce 426,000 tons of Saleable steel and 254,000 tons of Pig Iron annually. ISP also has captive collieries at Chasnalla, Jitpur and Ramnagore.

ISP produces a wide range of steel structurals and special sections as well as pig iron. The plant pioneered the production of Centre-Sill-Z Section used in the fabrication of wagons; Z-Type Sheet Piling Section used in the construction of barrages, bridge foundations and other projects and Colliery Arch Section used for roof support in the collieries. The plant has also developed ‘Slit Rolling’ for small diameter rounds e.g. 10mm T.M.T. and 12mm T.M.T. which are in high demand in the domestic market.

Before amalgmation with SAIL, ISP’s Sales Deptt used to market the entire products of Burnpur Works including Secondary Products as well Coke fractions. Headquartered at Kolkata, the marketing organization of IISCO reached out to its customers through its interactive regional offices situated at Kolkata, New Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai & 10 Branch Sales Offices spread across the four regions.

The approximate turnover of the Sales Unit is Rs.1300 Crores. The Plant is set to undergo a modernization cum capacity expansion so as to augment Hot Metal Production to 2.5 mtpy and Crude Steel Production to 2.0 mtpy by 2011-12 as per the Corporate Plan already approved by SAIL board for an expenditure of Rs.5000 Crores for Burnpur Works & Rs.1000 crores for Collieries.

ISP is accredited with ISO-9001 : 2000 Quality Management System for its Heavy Structural Mill and Merchant & Rod Mill while it has also been awarded ISO-14001:2004 Environment Management System for the entire Rolling Mill Complex.

A Corporate plan 2011-12 has been drawn out for the growth and development of ISP. The plan envisages growth in crude steel production from a level of 0.35 Million Tonnes(MT) in 2004-05 to a level of 2.0 MT in 2011-12. Corporate Plan of ISP envisages an investment of Rs.5017 Crores (approx) Burnpur Works: Rs.5017 Crores( Rs.597 Crores in existing stream and Rs.4420 Crores for the new stream) and Collieries : Rs.1000 Crores (includes Rs.620 Crores block cost for future development). The production envisaged is 2.5 MT(approx) of crude steel from 2009-10 including 1.45 MT(approx.) from new installation. IISCO and SAIL Board approved the Corporate Plan on 28.6.05 and 28.7.05 respectively. Process has been initiated for implementation of Corporate Plan.

Procedure followed in the decision making process including channels of supervision and accountability

IISCO is a commercial organization functioning in a fiercely competitive environment, facing competition both from domestic and international producers. In such situations, the speed of decision-making is very important for survival. Though, the company has well defined systems with respect to decision-making process, it cannot follow, at all time, the rigidity of system. Generally, the proposals requiring decisions are initiated at the appropriate level of the executive, depending upon the nature with regard to financial implication, urgency, and importance of the matter. Normally, the proposals are initiated at the level of Assistant Manager/Deputy Manger/Manager. The approval is accorded by the executives at the level of Dy. General Manager/General Manager/Executive Director/Managing Director/Chairman depending upon the Delegation of Powers.

Efforts are made so that files pass through minimum levels say 3 levels upto the Approving authority. In between, the proposal is also examined at the level of Senior Manager/Asstt. General Manager. Wherever required, the concurrence of Finance is taken at the appropriate level as per the delegation of powers. In case of matters requiring consideration of matter by more than two departments, a multi disciplinary committee consisting of executives of appropriate levels of the concerned departments, is formed to expedite the decision-making. As far as possible cross noting within the same department or within the departments is avoided.
