is constantly in touch with cement dealers, who are the crucial, connecting link between the manufacturer and the consumer. Dealers know the pulse of market, beat by beat. So we asked them how their business was going and what were the problems they were beset with. Here is their response, in their voice.

We have been in this field since 1975, supplying cement all over India. We represent Ultratech Cement, selling mostly OPC 53 and PPC. Some 60 per cent of our sales are institutional while 40 per cent are retail sales.

At any given point, we stock about 3,000 mt of cement.

The only problem we face sometimes is a shortage of railway carriages that leads to a delay in arrival of stock.

Speaking about the taxation system, if as planned only GST comes into effect, then traders will save an enormous amount of time, which they are now spending in dealing with separate local tax bodies. Proper guidelines and training to traders as well as government officials is a must to ensure a smooth process. We expect transparency in the entire system.
