Steel firms fear NPAs on iron ore export move 18.6.2018 DNA: Mumbai
After Karnataka miners' threat to move the Supreme Court (SC) this week to allow them to export iron ore, the state steel manufacturers have also gone aggressive in their opposition to it.

"The shortage (of iron ore) for steel manufacturing in the country will increase. Everybody will have to shut down if they (miners) start exporting iron ore.
