Ltd., Welspun Trading Ltd., Welspun Steel Ltd., and Welspun Investments and Commercials Ltd. Because we received no other requests for review of these companies and United States Steel Corporation withdrew its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the Notice of Initiation, we are rescinding the administrative review of the order with respect to Arihant Domestic Appliances Ltd., Good Luck Steel Tubes Ltd. and all affiliates, Good Luck Industries, Innoventive Industries Ltd., Jindal Group and all affiliates, Jindal Industries Ltd., Jindal Saw Ltd., Jindal Steel and Power Ltd., JSL Ltd., JSW Steel Ltd., Jotindra Steel and Tubes Ltd., Lloyds Group and all affiliates, Lloyds Metals & Engineers Ltd., Lloyds Steel Industries Ltd., Welspun Group and all affiliates, Welspun Corp.
