STEEL, METALS AND MINING
JSW Steel sees challenges on rising imports
 “Global economic situation continues to remain challenging with increasing uncertainties, impacting the prospect of economic growth across geographies. IMF projects World economy to grow at 3.3%. The Indian economy is expected to get back in growth mode post recent economic reform announcements. The world's crude steel production for the first nine months of 2012 at 1149 million tonnes, recorded a marginal growth of 0.6%. While some countries have recorded a reasonably good growth in steel production (i e USA 5.3%, Russia 4.3%, Korea 3.0%), continuing recessionary trends in Europe and slowing Chinese economy are expected to hold world steel production at previous year's level of 1518 million tonnes. Global steel production has already shown a decline of 4% during July to Sept 12 vis a vis previous quarter.”

JSW said “Indian steel industry has witnessed a subdued demand growth of 2.8% during the period Jul-Sep'12 vis a vis 7.7% in the previous quarter, coupled with rising imports mainly from FTA countries.”

It said “Whilst, domestic steel demand is expected to be steady, rising imports and availability of mineral resources will be major deterrents depriving Indian steel industry a level playing field vis a vis their global peers.”

COAL
Coal prices dip but Indian buyers wait on sidelines
Prompt physical coal prices slipped by 50-60 U.S. cents a tonne for the third day in a row as weak demand from India and China outweighed anxieties about South African strikes spreading to disrupt exports.
Although India's monthly imports have been strong and steady all year, spot buying for Q4 has been disappointing, suppliers said.
"Having waited for prices to drop to $80 for South African before buying and then seen the market fall below that level, they've backed off now because it may not have hit the bottom yet," one European trader said.
November and December loading South African cargoes were bid at $74.00 a tonne FOB Richards Bay on Friday - having fallen to a nearly three-year low of $77 on Wednesday.
Bids of $74 which were dismissed as unrealistically low by many players on Thursday seemed on Friday far more realistic a reflection of the market's weakness in the last two months of the calendar year, traders and utilities said.
While prices appear vulnerable to further falls, Indian buyers in particular will remain sidelined, they said.
A revival of Asian spot buying is unlikely in the near-term, Barclays Capital said in a research note on Friday.
"Barring any unexpected large-scale supply disruptions, we only expect prices to receive support when large importers such as India and China become active on the prompt market again," Bar Cap said.
"This is unlikely to happen in the very short term as China's inventories are still plentiful and India is banking on further downward price moves," the note said.
Around 1.2 million tonnes a year of coal production has been halted by strikes in South Africa which have cost the continent's largest economy over 10 billion rand this year.
However, the coal market has been largely unmoved because there has been no impact on rail transport or port operations and the market remains oversupplied, Deutsche Bank said in a note on Friday.
"Widespread signs of a production response are lacking, and we are therefore neutral to negative on thermal coal pricing in the near term despite the already-low level relative to marginal costs," Deutsche Bank said.

THE MARITIME LABOUR CONVENTION 2006 IS ENTERING INTO FORCE

The Philippines has become the 30th country to ratify the Maritime Labour Convention and therefore, MLC 2006 will enter into force on August 20, 2013. The Convention provides comprehensive rights and protection for more than 1.2 million seafarers worldwide.

The MLC 2006 includes more than 65 ILO Conventions and is intended to become a global instrument as the “fourth” pillar of the international regulatory regime for quality shipping, together with the key Conventions of the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
On August 20 the ILO has announced the 30th ratification of the MLC 2006 and since the 33 per cent of world gross tonnage has been fulfilled the MLC, 2006 is coming in force on August 20, 2013. The ILO Members that have ratified the Convention are Liberia, Marshall Islands, Bahamas, Panama, Norway,

Switzerland, Benin, Singapore, Denmark, Antigua and Barbuda, Latvia, Luxembourg, Kiribati, Australia,
Netherlands, Tuvalu, St Kitts & Nevis, Togo, Poland, Palau, Sweden, Cyprus, Russian Federation,

Ship Owners, Managers, Yards and Crew Manning Agencies have to comply with the requirements of the Convention and obtain certification for ships flagged by the above mentioned ILO Members. The applicability of the MLC, 2006 is as outlined below:

 Ships of 500 gross tonnage or above, flying the flag of a member and operating from a port,
or between ports, in another country.
The Convention requirements are very detailed and cover an extensive range of topics. Ship Owners

with the requirements of MLC, 2006. Ships that may be delayed for inspection and certification may risk detentions.

iron ore mining mess - CBI files charge sheet against Mr Yeddyurappa, kins and others

CBI on Tuesday filed its charge sheet against former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa for allegedly granting undue favours in return for donations to a charitable trust run by his kin and thereby causing a loss of INR 890 crore to the exchequer.

In its charge sheet filed before special CBI court, the agency named as accused Mr Yeddyurappa, his sons Mr BY Vijayendra and Mr BY Raghavendra, his son in law Mr RN Sohan Kumar and others

CBI sources said the accused have been booked under IPC sections 120 B (criminal conspiracy) read with 109 (Abetment), 420 (cheating), 468 (forgery), 471 (forging of documents) besides relevant sections of Prevention of Corruption Act and Section 9 read with Section 4 of Karnataka Land (Restriction on) Transfer Act related to illegal mining.

Describing the conspiracy, CBI alleged that during 2006-10, the then Karnataka chief minister Mr Yeddyurappa’s kin Mr Vijayendra, Mr Raghavendra and Mr Sohan Kumar, in violation of laws, purchased a land in Bangalore for INR 40 lakh which was notified for acquisition by the state government. The land was denotified from acquisition by Mr Yeddyurappa in an alleged abuse of his official position in violation of various rules. The agency alleged that the land was later sold at exorbitant rates of INR 20 crore even though the guidance value of the land was INR 1.5 crore
