Pakistani cement in demand in South Indian markets
Published: 23 June 2008

Pakistani cement is making way into South Indian markets where its demand is rising.  Media reports quoting an official of the Kerala Cement Dealers’ Association said 50kg Pakistani cement is available in Kochi at Rs250 as compared to local cement at Rs 260 a bag. The quality of Pakistani cement is very good but the supplies are limited.

A few months back, about 1000t of imported cement landed at Ernakulam at a price of Rs220 per bag when the domestic cement was costing around Rs250.
