The state has laid down a red corporate welcome to all the industries, he added.
Daggubati said, “Change is common. There is so much change happening around us. But, my association with Radha Smelters is very long. It is my longest ever endorsement with it since the year 2017. It is a passionately driven company by a very progressive and committed family.”

Higher ductility and tensile strength is the hallmark of this new range. The new range bars are considered ideal for critical infrastructure projects and high-rise buildings.
There are many grades in steel bars, 550D is a superior grade steel bar with high ductility. It is a special grade bar that only a handful of companies in India are able to manufacture.
This grade is used for high rises and for bridges, dams, ports, flyovers, bridges, wind turbine foundations and other structures that require a high load bearing capacity.
550D grade TMT bars are preferred for some specific properties that are resistant to earthquakes. These bars are resistant to earthquakes due to their soft pearlite core and can bear seismic and dynamic loading.
