India could extend deadline on steel import rules for automakers: Sources

NEW DELHI - India is considering extending by four months a compliance deadline on tougher import rules for steel that are aimed at forcing automakers to use locally made alloy, said two sources familiar with the matter. 

Compliance to the new rules had been set for Feb. 17, which was an extension of two months, but strict adherence to the regulations would have stalled production for India's auto industry, a federal minister has warned. 

India's auto manufacturing sector is  dominated by Maruti SuzukiNSE -1.10 %, Hyundai Motor Co, Honda Motor Co and Ford Motor Co. 

Carmakers continue to rely on imports because they say local steel companies do not manufacture the grades they need, said Sugato Sen, deputy director general of the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM). 

SIAM counts Maruti Suzuki, Toyota Motor Corp, Volkswagen, BMW and others as members. 

Auto companies want an extension until the end of 2019. 

'There are some grades that are not manufactured in India and we may allow those to be kept out of quality control for some more time,' a senior steel ministry official told Reuters on condition of anonymity, as the discussions are not public. 

The steel ministry did not immediately reply to a Reuters email seeking further comment. 

The ministry had previously objected to an extension as it would delay Prime Minister Narendra Modi's drive to check imports. It also wants to show the success of its manufacturing programme, which is aimed at building a domestic industrial base to boost jobs and growth.

The ability to 3D print titanium-alloy objects certainly does open up some intriguing possibilities. That said, the finished items aren't always as strong as they could be. Now, new research suggests that adding copper to those alloys could make a big difference.Typically, when objects are being 3D printed out of titanium alloy, a laser is used to selectively melt a powder consisting of titan...
