2. Sl No. 1 of import list of SION C-593 is at present described as "Non Alloy HR Coil /Plates". Herein after it will be modified to read as "Non Alloy / Alloy Steel HR Coil /Plates, whether of alloy steel or non-alloy steel of relevant grade & thickness ". Corresponding export product "Carbon Steel Submerged Arc Welded Pipes as per API Grades/ASTM Grade or equivalent OR Hot Formed Steel Bends as per API, ASTM Grade or equivalent grade Degree; 0-180 Degree" is modified to read as "Non Alloy/Alloy Steel submerged arc Welded Pipes as per API Grades/ASTM Grade or equivalent OR Hot Formed Steel Bends as per API, ASTM Grade or equivalent grade Degree : 0-180 Degree" . There is no other change pertaing to this SION, and hence both the number of inputs permitted as well as the respective quantities permitted would remain unchanged.

Effect of this modification:

Under SION C-593, till now only HR coil/plates made of non-alloy steel were permitted input at Sl No. 1 of the SION. Now the definition of this input is modified to permit HR coil/plates made out of Alloy steel also. Description of export product has accordingly been amended to reflect the usage of Non alloy/alloy steel in the export product. There is no other change.
