Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Read the following passage and answer the questions 1 to 5   White cement is the basic raw material for producing cement tiles and cement paint, which are used extensively in building construction. The main consumers of white cement are, therefore, cement tile and cement paint manufacturing units. These consumers, mostly in the small-scale sector, are today facing a major crisis because of a momentous increase in the price of white cement during a short period. The present annual licensed production capacity of white and gray cement in the country is approximately 3.5 lakh tonnes. The normal demand is 2-2.5 lakh tonnes. This means that there is the idle capacity to the tune of one-lakh tones or more. The price rise is, therefore, not a phenomenon arising out of inadequate production capacity but evidently, because of artificial scarcity created by the manufacturers in their self-centeredness, The main reason for the continuing spurt in cement price is its decontrol. As it is, there is stiff competition in the cement paint and tile manufacturing business. Any further price revision at this stage is bound to have a severe adverse impact on the market conditions.
