Visakhapatnam Steel Plant, which is recording high levels of production, is also concentrating on building and upgrading sports infrastructure in its Ukkunagaram township, RINL Director (Finance) P. Madhusudhan said while inaugurating the inter-steel plant hockey championship at the new hockey field in Sector I of Ukkunagaram on Saturday.

A full-fledged football ground at Visakha Vimala Vidyalaya on the BC road, a 10-station multi-gym, a flood-lit walkers track were some of the facilities provided for the employees and their families, he said. Now the hockey field has been added.

VSP is conducting the championship for the first time and the hockey field was laid recently.

Heavy rain did not allow first day’s matches to be played. The participating teams were introduced to Mr. Madhusudhan.
