Rising cement prices affect our business: Dealers
Srinagar, May 26: Members of All J&K Cement Retail Dealers’ Association Tuesday called on Director, Consumer Affairs and Public Distribution (CAPD) complaining negative fallout on their business of “sharp” hike in cement prices.
General Secretary of the association, Muhammad Ramzan, told Greater Kashmir that although both the association members and cement manufacturers were supposed to be present at the meeting in CAPD directorate, “no manufacturer but one turned up.”
“They in fact refused in writing to come to the meeting, over which the director expressed disappointment,” he said.
However, he said, the director CAPD took note of their concerns and assured them of positive results.
Pertinently, according to the cement dealers, during past some months, the cement manufacturers had arbitrarily increased the prices of cement by Rs 12,000 to Rs 15,000 per truckload (180 bags), which, they said, was badly affecting their business.
