Price of bag of cement goes up by Rs. 100

The price of a 50 kilogram bag of cement has been increased by Rs 100 from last Saturday (16).

According to a request made by INSEE Cement (Sanstha) and Tokyo Cement Companies from the Consumer Affairs Authority, the permission has been granted to increase the price.

The cement companies had requested the permission to increase the price in line with the depreciation of rupee in contrast to the US dollar and the increase of the price of raw materials used in cement production.
