Shares of select steelmakers were in the green on March 28 on prospects of further price hikes in the coming months.

At 10:00 am, shares of Ratnamani Metals, Tata Steel, and JSW Steel were up 0.2-1 percent on the National Stock Exchange.

The sector got a fillip after brokerage Phillip Capital in a note said that JSW Steel has raised price of Hardness Rockwell C grade steel prices by Rs 2,000 per tonne on March 25 after raising prices by Rs 1,500 per tonne earlier in the month.

The successive price hikes have come after a momentary pause in price increases by steel companies due to softening global commodity prices prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last month.
