- Sunil Gangawani, Proprietor, Gangwani Traders
Located in Raipur City in Chhatisgarh, we started our business with cement in 1997. When started with the philosophy ´to look ahead and never look back´. I only look ahead and move forward. I do not have a specific target to achieve. I also deal in other building materials like bricks, sand, lime stone, gypsum etc. I cover Raipur city, Raipur district, and Baloda Bazar where 5-6 cement plants are located around. I deal with JK Lakshmi Cement in retail and in wholesale market. Business in retail is more than that in wholesale. The monthly sale is 250-300 tonne. Labour is a big problem here in Raipur. This market is dominated by PPC. Today, delivery is the best from all the companies. Every 3-4 km there are depots which can deliver material. This year companies are giving very good scheme. Officers have started making regular visits. GST is the best thing to happen. The tax structure will become simple. The taxation impacts the end-customer and it upsets the market. I have high hopes that the market will improve.
