Chhattisgarh: Bhilai Steel Plant supplied TMT steel bars for Ram Mandir

The Bhilai Steel Plant (BSP) in Chhattisgarh has supplied around 1,100 tonnes of thermomechanically treated (TMT) steel bars of various sizes for the construction of the newly constructed Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. The TMT bars for the temple project were produced at the BSP's modern Bar and Rod Mill and Merchant Mill, company officials said.

They include TMT rods in 550D grade of 12mm diameter produced at Bar and Rod Mill and TMT rods in the same grade of 32mm diameter produced at Merchant Mill, they said.

BPS is the Chhattisgarh-based arm of the state-owned Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL). The company produces high-strength TMT bars with earthquake and corrosion-resistant properties for use in dams, power stations, bridges, viaducts and highways, among others.

The consecration ceremony of Ram Mandir will take place on January 22.
