As the individual requirements of SSI units for Raw Materials are very small, they are not able to procure the Raw Materials at their best prices. Keeping this in mind and in order to make our raw material assistance scheme more lucrative, NSIC has tied up with Following manufacturers of Raw material for bulk procurements on behalf of our associate SSI units. NSIC has MOU with NALCO wherein discounts upto 6000 PMT are passed on directly to the units. NSIC falls in the highest lifting bracket as our all India lifting is clubbed and quantity discounts are received accordingly.

B)         SAILand RINLfor Iron & Steel (Priority Lifting & Discounts)

C)         Hindustan Copper Ltd for Copper (Priority Lifting)
