Moving on to stock specific news...

Among the buzzing stocks today is JSW Steel.

Domestic steel major JSW Steel is in the process of acquiring land at Jagatsinghpur in Odisha where it has proposed to set up a 13.2 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) greenfield steel plant along with a 900 MW power plant for captive usage with an investment amount of Rs 537 billion.

The land is on the same site near the port of Paradip where South Korean steel giant POSCO was keen to set up a 12 MTPA steel plant.

Earlier in 2005, the Odisha government and POSCO had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in this regard. However, the company had to abandon its proposed Rs 520 billion project due to multiple reasons from delay in environmental clearances to protests by locals.

The pact ultimately expired in 2010 and was not renewed again.

After POSCO shelved its plan to set up the steel plant, JSW Group approached the Odisha government for the land. Subsequently, all statutory clearances given to POSCO were transferred to JSW Steel.

In December 2019, the hearing for the company's project was held. The hearing was conducted peacefully and successfully with the integrated project being passed unopposed with almost the same investment that POSCO was looking for.

The company expects work to start soon on the Rs 537 billion project.

We will keep you updated on all the news from this space. Stay tuned.

At the time of writing, JSW Steel share price was trading up by 1% on the BSE.

This makes Kataria the first Indian to be elevated to the global role of Bata. He takes over from Alexis Nasard, who is stepping down after almost five years in the role.

With 24 years of experience at Unilever, Yum Brands, Vodafone in India and Europe before joining Bata India as CEO in 2017, Kataria has been directly involved in leading businesses and powerhouse brands that command impressive consumer following and global reach.

Over the past few years, the Bata India team delivered exceptional growth in footwear volumes, revenues and profits. It also strengthened Bata's customer measures in a highly competitive footwear market.

The Bata Group and Bata India both stand to benefit greatly from Sandeep's extensive experience.

How this change in leadership pans out for the company remains to be seen. Meanwhile, stay tuned for all the updates from this space.
