The company in a statement said two global tenders totaling to Rs.650 crore were floated by Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd (RVNL) for major passenger railway line projects in the country.
SAIL would supply varieties of rails to RVNL for four important passenger railway line projects connecting Hospet-Tinaighat, Daund-Gulbarga, Titlagarh-Raipur and Sambalpur-Titlagarh.
The schedule for supply of the high quality (grade 880 class A) rails by SAIL would be completed within 18 months from the date of award of contract, the company said.
SAIL's flagship firm, Bhilai Steel Plant (BSP), which had been supplying rails to the Indian Railways since its inception, fulfilled total requirement of 7 lakh tonnes annually.
BSP was gearing up to meet all future requirements of the railways, including head-hardened rails with an ongoing Rs.17,265-crore modernisation and expansion programme.
SAIL said work was progressing rapidly at BSP's new 1.2 million tonne per annum capacity plant.
