It has been clarified and demonstrated that the conclusions drawn by Singh, Ramaswamy and Suryanarayana (1992) in an investigation of development of rolling textures in an austenitic stainless steel are correct. The observations and reinterpretations drawn by Leffers (1993) are without any proper scientific basis and do not hold good at least in austenitic stainless steel.
