CR feedstock is imported from South Korea, Japan as well as is supplied by the parent company Asian Colour Coated Ispat Limited, which operates mills in India. At present, the entire output is sold domestically,but the company plans to start exporting some volumes to the Middle East, Europe and Africa.So,the producer expects to sell 35% of the material to the home market, and 65% –to foreign ones
