Bhubaneswar, Aug 8 - Indian steel giant Tata Steel Friday said it has shut down its 50,000 tonnes per annum ferro alloys plant in Odisha due to unavailability of raw material.

The plant was facing a raw material crisis after the company suspended operation at its Sukinda chromite mine May 17 because of non-renewal of lease.

The company has requested the state government for its renewal, the company said in a statement.

Ferro alloys plant at Bamnipal tried its best to run the plant with available inventory and using innovating practices, it said.
