An MoU to this effect was signed by H Sundaram Prabhu, GM (C&IT), NMDC, and Manohar Raja, Executive Director, RailTel at NMDC’s headquarters in Hyderabad on Monday (10 October).
NMDC chairman and managing director Sumit Deb said that this partnership will focus on optimal utilisation of resources and build mineral accountability, paving the way for a robust digital transformation in the mining sector, according to a Steel Ministry statement.
