 The Clinkerisation plant of BJCL, a joint venture between JAL & SAIL at
 Satna continued to function satisfactorily with 100% utilization of

 utilization remained at sub-optimal level due to lesser availability of
 slag from Bhilai Steel Plant.

 Company has achieved a gross turnover of Rs. 454 crore, as against
 Rs.1116 crore during the Financial Year 2011-12 which comprised a
 period of 18 months. The working results of BJCL for the year under
 report (6 months) resulted in an operating profit of Rs. 55.46 crore as

 availability of slag from Bokaro Steel Plant.  Slag supply position,
 however, gradually started improving in the last quarter of the year
 and the unit achieved 85% capacity utilization in the month of March
 2013. Considering the recent trend of supply, BOJCL is hopeful that
 during 2013-14 slag availability is likely to improve which would
 enable the grinding unit to achieve a higher capacity utilisation.
 Despite lower capacity utilization, the Company has achieved a gross
 turnover of Rs. 627.36 crores during the year under report, backed by a
 strong brand image and resultant higher realization for its product.
 The turnover increased by 130.49% over previous year''s turnover.
