India scraps 5 pct export duty on iron ore pellets | Reuters

NEW DELHI India has scrapped a 5 percent duty on exports of iron ore pellets to make overseas shipments competitive amid a sharp fall in the world price of the steelmaking raw material, a government order showed on Tuesday.

"This would improve capacity utilization of pellet plants and give necessary boost to (the) sector," Steel and Mines Minister Narendra Singh Tomar tweeted.
