After Dr. Dastur's return to India, he pursued the development of the direct reduction industry in the country. As early as 1951, Dr. Dastur was appointed consultant on behalf of Brassert for a project by the Rotary Electric Steel Co., USA, the first ever consultancy on a direct reduction project. This culminated in Dastur being appointed as consulting engineers for the first direct reduction project in India in 1974.
