INFORMATION ABOUT BHILAI
Located in the Indian state of Chattisgarh, Bhilai is a major travel destination of central India. With the help of Russian Government the second Indian Steel plant was grown from the date 2nd Feb 1955. At that time, Bhilai was an unknown remote village. But now a new, modern city has been developed there surrounding the steel plant. Bhilai has emerged as an excellent educational centre, contributing to the educational needs in all technologica
The Bhilai Steel Plant (BSP[i]) - a public sector undertaking run by the Steel Authority of India - was built with Soviet co-operation and technology, and began production in 1959. It was deliberately located in what was then regarded as a remote and "backward" rural area, profits being secondary to employment in the planning priorities of the time. BSP currently has nearly 55, 000 permanent workers on its direct pay-roll, of whom approximately three-fifths work inside the 17 square kilometer plant and the remainder for its associated mines and quarries, and for the purpose-built BSP township. This compares with a regular workforce of 63,400 in 1987. In addition, on any one day there are at present something in the region of 8,000 contract workers employed by the plant and the township, and a further 3,500 - 4,000 employed by the mines. Though a handful of managers, and a significant proportion of the contract labour force, are women, all of the regular BSP workers assigned to duties inside the plant are men.
