India's largest private sector steel maker, Tata Steel, will construct 50 relief shelters in flood-hit region of north Bihar.

"B. Muthuraman, managing director, Tata Steel, has instructed the Tata Relief Committee to construct 50 semi-permanent relief shelters in the flood affected areas of Bihar," a company press statement said on Tuesday.

"Transportation of materials such as Tata Shaktee sheets and Tata MS pipes worth several crores, which are required for building shelters are being dispatched from Jamshedpur to Bihar. The process of construction is expected to start within a week's time," it added.

Tata Steel will also be assisting in the rehabilitation and reconstruction work in the affected villages. Tata Relief Committee is operated by the Tata group of companies in Jamshedpur.

Over 2.5 million people in 1,598 villages across 15 districts have been affected by the floods caused by the change in course of the Kosi river, following a breach in an embankment upstream in Nepal.
