The G blast furnace due for rebuilding was to go down in middle of October 2004. The condition of blast furnace was critically reviewed in the month of July and certain steps were taken to prolong its life. It has now been decided to shutdown the furnace sometime in early December 2004. It is estimated that the upgradation of this Blast Furnace will take 100 days as against 105 days taken for the same activity, in 2002, for the relatively smaller F-Blast Furnace.
