The mines have now been operational with an annual capacity of over 1.5 million tonnes making the company the largest player in chrome ore mining in India, a statement said.

The idea behind the initiative is to use the chromite ore optimally to make ferro chrome to serve its growing base of Indian and global customers, who are in the business of manufacturing stainless steel.

"We will take the organic as well as the inorganic route to augment our ferro chrome manufacturing capacity in India, leveraging the strength of the good quality of chrome ore availability. This will make TSML the top Ferro Chrome player in India and among the top-five globally. It makes sense to focus on value addition and convert the chrome ore to ferro chrome," Tata Steel Mining Limited, chairperson D B Sundara Ramam said.
