JSPL Overview Review of Operations Notice Directors’ Report Founding Chairman’s vision Late Shri O.P. Jindal, Founding Chairman “India has come a long way since Independence. But if it wants to attain inclusive growth in every sense of the word, the fruits of growth must be equitably distributed to all sections of the society, including the lowliest of the low. I am confident that this is possible if every individual, every government and every corporate joins hands to translate this idea into reality. I look forward to that day when national prosperity will not mean economic growth for a select few, but for India’s entire billion-plus population.” Jindal Steel & Power Limited 4

JSPL Overview Review of Operations Notice Directors’ Report EVC & MD’s message To emerge as a major participant in the growth process, JSPL is continuing with its strategic objectives of expansion and development of existing reserves and capacity, enriching its product portfolio, securing raw material availability globally and implementing high standards of corporate governance. In line with these objectives, there is major action on the ground: expansion plans are being executed at Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Odisha. Besides, we have planned a Rs. 10,500 crore investment in Bolivia, South America, in the coming years for mining and setting up of an integrated 1.7 MTPA steel plant, 450 MW power plant, 6 MTPA sponge iron and 10 MTPA iron ore pellet plant. JSPL’s commitment to highest standards of corporate governance is reflected in transparent stakeholder communication, and the underlying element of trust that we have been able to create among local residents in the multi-cultural locations of our presence through corporate and community engagements. Mr. Naveen Jindal, Executive Vice Chairman and Managing Director, JSPL, shares his insight about the Company and the steel industry, domestic and global. The times are momentous. There is a tectonic shift in the concentration of economic strength from the advanced economies to the developing nations of Asia, Latin America and the CIS countries. This is of particular relevance for countries like India and China, which are registering strong and sustainable economic growth in Asia. India’s economic growth is catalysed by growing domestic markets and demand emanating from bottom- of-the-pyramid wealth. The role of the Indian government has been noteworthy in this regard in terms of ensuring a proper regulatory framework under which the economy can grow and provide the necessary fiscal stimulus to accelerate economic revival. I am happy to note that we performed satisfactorily in 2009-10. Our turnover touched Rs. 11,151.82 crores, marginally higher than Rs. 10,913.37 crores that we reported in 2008-09. We reported a Rs. 3,634.56-crores net profit against Rs. 3,007.15 crores in 2008-09. We have always adhered to our long-term strategies of developing market leadership and enhancing our business performance with advanced technologies, efficient cost structures and a discerning knowledge of market opportunities across geographies. We also allotted 77,56,51,530 bonus shares of Re. 1 each in the ratio of 5 bonus shares for each existing equity share of Re. 1 in the last fiscal as a way of rewarding our shareholders and enhancing liquidity. India’s steel industry has been benefited by these developments as domestic requirements are growing rapidly and downstream industries are witnessing a high demand. India’s per capita steel consumption is still abysmally low: around 45 kg, vis-à-vis the world average of 196 kg. So there is a considerable room for consumption growth, which will attract investments for more capacity creation across the next decade. Besides, as the economies of several nations return to normalcy, the demand for steel-based goods will surge. This is reflected in the growing demand for automotive products, building construction and large infrastructure projects, which were deferred owing to the slowdown. Jindal Steel & Power Limited 6 JSPL’s commitment to highest standards of corporate governance is reflected in transparent stakeholder communication, and the underlying element of trust that we have been able to create among local residents in the multi-cultural locations of our presence through corporate and community engagements.
