JSW Steel reported about three-fold jump in its consolidated net profit for the fourth quarter ended 31 March, reports PTI.

The consolidated total income of the company increased by 16 per cent to ₹ 20,862 crore during the quarter as against ₹ 17,973 crore in the corresponding quarter of the previous fiscal.

The issue has been resolved and the plant is now running at full capacity, it said.

The company's consolidated net profit stood at Rs 2,879 crore, up from Rs 1,008 crore in the same period a year ago. "During the year, our Indian operations delivered volume growth better than the market on the back of the ramp-up at our Kalinganagar plant and the strength of our marketing network and brand equity".

Tata Steel's Q4FY18 performance beat was largely due to favourable steel environment globally.

Following the plans for Bhushan Steel, TV Narendran, managing director of Tata Steel said "while BSL is right now operating at around 3-3.5 million tonne (mt) capacity, we can easily see it operating at 4-4.5 mt".
