He said that the NTPC was currently doing the DPR for the project. The draft prospectus would be shortly filed with Sebi, Vohra said.

Vohra said that the issue would be made through the book-building process. The company, which makes TMT Bars, is also setting up a new steel plant at Himachal Pradesh with a capacity of 0.5 million tonnes. SPS has one plant in Durgapur also.

SPS steel clocked revenue of Rs 1200 crore (Rs 12 billion) in the last financial year. The target for the current year is Rs 2000 crore (Rs 20 billion), he said.
