Government has asked major steel companies, including state-run SAIL, to set up stockyards in rural areas so that consumers save on time and cost of transportation.

"We have asked leading steel players, including SAIL and RINL, to establish stockyards in rural areas for providing products required in construction and other applications. This will save time and cost of transportation for consumers and boost per man consumption," Steel Minister Beni Prasad Verma told PTI.
