Steelmaker JSPL on Tuesday said its steel production increased 6 percent year-on-year to 6.6 lakh tonne in August.

During the month, its sales volume also increased by 4 percent y-o-y to 7.1 lakh tonne, Jindal Steel and Power Limited (JSPL) said in a statement.

"JSPL''s sales increased to 7.1 lakh tonnes, up 4 percent y-o-y. Production stood at 6.6 lakh tonnes, up 6 percent y-o-y," the statement said.

Notwithstanding subdued construction activities due to the ongoing monsoons in August, the company has maintained strong momentum in sales and production, it added.

JSPL Managing Director (MD) V R Sharma said, "We hope the domestic demand will rebound sharply once the monsoon season is over. The government of India is pushing its infrastructure projects and this will help steel players to ride the growth momentum".
