Pakistani cement exporters eyeing India

Pakistan's cement industry is eyeing the Indian market and wants the government to lobby with New Delhi to surmount the hurdle of standards certification.Pakistani exports to India have got stuck for want of certification by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

'We have asked the federal government to get approval from the BIS as a number of Pakistani companies have applied for it,' said Aizaz Shaikh, chairman All Pakistan Cement Manufacturers Association (APCMA).

Pakistani cement makers, operating their factories below capacity, are eyeing the Indian market, which is estimated to require more than 2.5-3 million tonnes cement annually.The industry says it can easily supply 6,000 to 8,000 tonnes daily.

Industry sources said that local factories had enough capacity to ship 8,000-10,000 tonnes of cement a day to India. Pakistani cement makers have set a price of Rs.240 per 50 kg bag while the local price is Rs.190 to Rs.210.
