Steel Authority Of India Ltd has had some of its orders cancelled due to slower handling at ports as a 21-day lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus hit movement of goods, a source directly involved said on Thursday.

The country's largest state-owned steel company faced a marginal hit to production and some of its inventory was piled up at ports, the source said, declining to be identified due to the sensitive nature of operations.

Most steel companies have faced similar disruptions and have suspended operations at some of their plants.
