Prices of major construction materials like cement and steel continue to increase in Nepal despite low demand in the market. 

Cement has become dearer by NPR50-60/50kg bag depending on the brand. At present, cement is available in range of NPR550-710/bag.


Dhurba Thapa, vice-president of Cement Manufacturer´s Association of Nepal, said price of cement is increasing despite falling demand in the market due to rise in prices of raw materials and high transportation costs.
