SUFI has been formed, to provide a platform for the steel fraternity common issues. This can prove to be one stop for the fragmented sector. Currently there would be various associations, federations working as grievance cells in this industry, but SUFI will perform as whole for the issues faced by the entire steel sector
We are building SUFI to become operative PAN India, it would not be bound by any region specifications or boundaries.
India is the world’s third-largest producer of crude steel (up from eighth in 2003) and is expected to become the second-largest producer by 2016. The growth in the Indian steel sector has been driven by domestic availability of raw materials such as iron ore and cost-effective labour. Consequently, the steel sector has been a major contributor to India’s manufacturing output.
The Indian steel industry is very modern with state-of-the-art steel mills. It has always strived for continuous modernization and up-gradation of older plants and higher energy efficiency levels.
Steel Users Federation of India now popularly known as ‘SUFI’ has achieved remarkable success in a short span of time to bring various stake holders of steel industry on a common platform and is marching towards achieving its objective to achieve higher per capita consumption of steel and thereby promoting growth and excellence in steel industry. SUFI has more than 7000 members across India and chapters in various states. SUFI has always acted proactively as an interface between government and steel industry and trade. SUFI has been instrumental in creating awareness about GST, published GST-DECODED FOR STEEL, held workshops and help–desk for GST, held steel conferences in India and abroad and have regularly engaged with the government on various policy issues. SUFI provides PAN India presence with a democratic, honest and focused approach to address the members / member association's problems and take them up suitably with relevant authorities with result oriented approach.
As a humble President of SUFI, I am sure that this federation has marked its presence and is catering to the needs by becoming a fountain of support for Indian steel industry.
I sincerely hope steel fraternity will appreciate our efforts.With Warm Regards,
