For Q4FY22E, on a sequential basis, steel realisation (blended) of standalone operations is expected to witness a declining trend QoQ, on the back of softening trend in flat product steel prices and also on account of sequentially lower export realisation. Furthermore, on a QoQ basis, for Q4FY22E, coking coal costs of standalone operations are expected to increase by ~US$40/tonne.

For Q4FY22E, Tata Steel European operations EBITDA/tonne is expected to inch upwards sequentially, aided by lower iron ore costs on a QoQ basis.
