Cement cos raise price in eastern region
Cement manufacturing companies have raised cement prices by Rs 10-12 per bag in West Bengal, Bihar and Orissa regions. Currently, cement prices are at Rs 220-240 per bag in the eastern region. With the monsoon season coming to an end, cement prices are expected to go up. In the last couple of months, leading manufacturers have seen a slowdown in sales which has resulted in inventory pile-up.
