SAIL dealers to get financial assistance from SIB

Published on

South Indian Bank and Steel Authority of India Limited have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to provide financial assistance to the dealers of SAIL across the country.

Commenting on the significance of the MoU, Mr. Murali Ramakrishnan, MD & CEO, South Indian Bank said, “The tie-up allows us to offer SAIL’s dealers with financial assistance for working capital, especially steel procurement. With our network of 928 branches, we will be able to serve the MSME and corporate customers of SAIL located at different geographies.

We are sure that the association will benefit the dealers by allowing them more financial room to manage their off take. Since steel is an important component for industry, it will boost SAIL and consequently, India’s steel production, which aligns with the Central Government’s infrastructure and industrial push.”

Mr Surendra Sharma, CGM – Finance and CMO, SAIL, said “Our association with SIB will provide them an alternative financing option at competitive prices. It will ensure unhindered and smooth flow of steel through the supply chain, which, in turn, will ensure that the wheels of industry run smoothly.”

The MoU was exchanged between Mr. Praveen Joy (Head-Transaction Banking Group) of South Indian Bank, and Mr. Surendra Kumar Sharma, (CGM- Finance & Accounts) of SAIL, recently. Mr. Jiljith J, (AGM & Regional Head- Kolkata, South Indian Bank) and Ms. Chaitali Deb (GM- Finance & Accounts, SAIL) were also present on the occasion.
