Tata Steel Imports Coal from Russia
Steel major Tata Steel imported about 75,000 tonnes of coal from Russia in the second half of May, weeks after pledging to stop doing business with Russia.
In April this year, Tata Steel had said all its manufacturing sites in India, the UK and the Netherlands had sourced alternative supplies of raw materials to end its dependence on Russia, adding it was taking a conscious decision to stop doing business with Russia.
Despite this statement, sources said that in May, Tata Steel shipped about 75,000 tonnes of PCI coal, used in steelmaking, from Russia’s Vanino port.
Interesting to note that the deal to import coal from Russia was made before the company’s announcement to cut business ties with Russia.
Note that metal stocks have fallen this year and have eroded around a quarter of their market value.

Breather for Mutual Funds
In news from the mutual fund space, the market regulator has permitted mutual funds to again invest in foreign stocks within the aggregate mandated limit of US$ 7 bn for the industry.
In January, the market watchdog had asked mutual fund houses to stop taking fresh subscriptions in schemes investing in overseas stocks.
The directive to stop subscription was mainly on account of the mutual fund industry crossing the mandated limit of US$ 7 bn for overseas investments.
The recent meltdown in global stocks reduced the cumulative value of investments made by all the mutual fund houses together.
Meanwhile, Edelweiss Mutual Fund announced that it will be accepting inflows in its international schemes from Tuesday.
