Indian cement companies came out with their monthly dispatches. These figures assumed significance because this was perhaps the only year where prices sustained high levels even during the monsoon, reports CNBC-TV18.


The monsoons are believed to be the reason for the disruption in the MoM figures for most cement companies.
