Minister, Chief (1973) Inaugural Address. In: Symposium on Science and Technology of Sponge Iron and Its Conversion to Steel, 19-21, Feb. 1973, CSIR - National Metallurgical Laboratory, Jamshedpur.



Dr. Altekar, distinguished guest, ladies and gentlemen, It is indeed a great privilege to be present on the occa-ssion of the Inauguration of this international symposium on "Science and technology of sponge iron and its conv-ersion to steel". The technology that is going to be dis-cussed here is not only new approach to steel making in India but also in many parts of the world. A few scien-tists and technologists in the world have working know-ledge of these processes. You will therefore appreciate and understand my own unfamiliarity with this subject. Inspite of this, I very gladly accepted the invitation due to my own deep interest in the growth of a new industries, which are so vital for bringing a socio-economic revo-lution, a call given by our beloved Prime Minister.
