HP asks cement cos to slash prices
Himachal Pradesh government has asked the cement companies located in the state to take immediate measures to reduce prices, the State Industries Minister Kishan Kapoor has asked cement factories to act in this direction.
He said that the precious land of the State had been given by the people to cement companies to set up cement plants and various incentives were being provided to cement factories by the Government but in spite of this, the prices of cement were higher in the state in comparison to neighbouring states.
Cement factories in the state should ensure that cement was available on reasonable rates to the people, the State government has said.
