Builders Association of India has taken the initiative to purchase cement bags in bulk from a major manufacturing company in Hyderabad and then supply them to the region, a top BAI official said today.

Through bulk purchase of cement, the builders and the construction industry could save R17-27, depending on the destination and route since the bags would be transported through railways, K Vishwanathan, national vice-president, BAI, said.
