A Graduate in Mining Engineering, Mr. Maity (1980 batch) from NIT, Raipur (erstwhile Govt. College of Engg. & Tech., Raipur) initially joined WCL (at Pench & Kanhan Valley coalfield ) in May, 1980 and subsequently switched over to SAIL, Durgapur Steel Plant, in December, 1980. After completing the exhaustive training (class room as well as hands-on at Shop floor) in integrated Steel Plant operations at Durgapur, he was posted at Bolani Ores Mines of Raw Material Divison, SAIL. He served at Bolani Ores Mines for about 19 years in various capacities, after that he moved to SAIL’s Meghatuburu Iron Ore Mine and then to Kiriburu Iron Ore Mine. With his consistent and outstanding performance he became the General Manager (Mines) of Kiriburu Iron ore Mine in 2007. Later he was elevated to the post of Executive Director, RMD in 2011 and posted at headquarters, Kolkata.
Sri Kalyan Maity was Director (Raw Material & Logistics) of Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL), A Maharatna Public Undertaking from 01.03.2013 to 28.02.2018. After completion of 5 years tenure, he joined back as Executive Director (SA) in SAIL w.e.f. 01.03.2018.
A strong believer in hard work, Mr. Maity has made remarkable contributions in steering RMD to a new direction to ensure Iron Ore Security for SAIL despite formidable challenges. He took special initiative to start development of Tasra coking coal project to increase the captive washed coking coal production to around 3 MPTA. Similarly, special initiative was taken by him to add additional ports through long term contracts in East coast keeping in view the economics of railing as well as availability of wagons to ensure uninterrupted supply of enhanced imported coking coal and limestone to SAIL plants. During his tenure several significant steps have been taken in Mines Division for capacity augmentation and modernisation of mines as well as CSR.
Major Iron Ore Mine projects finalised/ordered/commissioned during his tenure to increase iron ore production to meet the enhanced requirement of 38 MTPA post expansion.
In Coal Import Division, new suppliers have been established for both hard and soft coking coal and PCC from US, Canada, Columbia, Mozambique and Indonesia to reduce SAIL’s dependence on Australia. Further it gave better price negotiation power to SAIL and protected the SAIL plants from supply problem due to major weather related dislocation in Australia.
Besides his consistent effort in production improvement, Mr. Maity focused on improving the motivational level of employees who have been working in the remote and undulated terrain of mines. He earnestly worked for changing the quality of life of the people living in the neighbouring villages of RMD mines by implementing a number of projects under CSR for Health care, Education, Infrastructure development, Self-employment, Sports & Culture. SAIL’s Eklavya Archery Academy in Kiriburu was established during his tenure.
Mr Maity has attended various training programmes within the Country and abroad. Notably, he has been to Australia twice, once to participate in training on Mines Operation, and later, to attend the programme on Project Pre-feasibility Study on Chiria Deposit. He has also attended an Advanced Management Course in Cambridge, UK.
