Mr. Alok Sanghi - Director, Sanghi Industries
The cement industry is one of the most taxed industries in India. The excise duty on steel is just 4% whereas for cement it is 12%. We believe the governÂ¬ment really needs to focus on how they can reduce the cost of cement, either by reducing the royalties, or reducing excise duty.
Government also needs to change policy on waste utilisation by cement and other industries. Currently, municipal corporations charge for waste utilized by companies. However, in developed countries, government encourages waste utilisation through payment to companies against successful waste recycling. Only if there is any incentive to recycle waste, it is viable and feasible for cement companies to replace coal for energy production.
