Tile manufacturers in Morbi are crying foul over a hike in natural gas prices by Gujarat Gas, their main fuel supplier. The Rs 4.37 per SCM hike (excluding taxes, for a three-month minimum guaranteed offtake) in prices will cost the industry about Rs 100 crore extra a month, given that the 950-odd units in the area consume 70 lakh cu m of gas daily.
