In 2021-22, the BSL recorded the highest-ever profit and EBITDA of Rs 6,064 crore of the SAIL’s Profit Before Tax (PBT) Rs 16,039 crore.

The ‘ladoo’ reward was introduced by director in-charge Amarendu Prakash, who used to give a surprise visit to the department that performs exceptionally and appreciates employees by gifting them ‘ladoos’. Besides, the hoardings containing photos of the best employees of the month installed across the township also bring honor to the staff and motivate them further.
