Top construction firms in the state are privileged to get cement at low price than the open market says Kerala Government Contractors Association (KGCA).
Cement manufacturers sell one bag cement (of 50 kg) for Rs.120 to the big construction firms against the open market price between Rs.420-440.
The big companies enjoy this huge discount without affecting open market price hike during their supply contract with the manufacturer.

This is a big injustice to common men-points out the organisation.
In Tamil Nadu cement is available for Rs.190 in open market,thanks to the state government’s interference.
The government in Kerala also should implement such discounts-said KGCA State president Vargheese Kannampally.
