Resurgere Mines and Minerals Ltd (RMML) hit the upper circuits in the BSE at, Rs.1.88, intra-day to close Rs.1.85, up 17.83%. It hit the upper circuits in the NSE, up 19.35%. There are hopes that the government is likely to reduce EXPORT DUTY on Iron-ore fines (and Bauxite), which are generally not used for the domestic industry. If this happens then, the companies in this sector, like RMML would be greatly benefit as they could again resume their trading activities, which got virtually stalled due to faulty government policies. Mineral exporters have already urged the government of India to abolish export duty to compete with other suppliers in global markets and make way for further excavation at mine sites.
Jindal Saw Ltd today came down to Rs.78.95 intra-day before closing at Rs.79.75. However, HDFC Securities Ltd have already given a target of Rs.100 for the scrip in the next 10-15 days.

Moreover, the scrap and iron ore prices have started to firm up in the international market which is an indication that the sponge iron prices are likely to head-northwards in the coming days. The book value of the shares of Rohit-Ferro Tech Ltd, is Rs.50.94.
Unitech Ltd slipped at the end of the day to close at Rs.17.70. It rose ot Rs.18.70 intra-day.
