Price Of Sand Doubled, Construction Work Stopped


PDDU Nagar. Building material prices have increased significantly after the second wave of Corona. Especially the price of sand is skyrocketing. The situation is that sand is now being sold at double the price. In March, where the price of a tractor trolley sand was Rs 4000-4500, now it has become Rs 8000-8500 per trolley. Due to the increase in the price of sand, people have postponed the construction work of buildings etc. Everyone is waiting for the sand to become cheap.
The Son river in Bihar supplies sand to many states including Uttar Pradesh. For the last eight months, there has been no tender for the sand of the Son river. Because of this the prices of red sand are touching the sky. Building material businessman Imtiaz Khan Raju said that in the month of March, the price of sand per tractor trolley was Rs 4000-4500. Now the cost of sand per trolley has gone up to Rs 8000-8500. He said that due to the increase in the price of sand, its demand has also decreased. Many people have postponed their construction work. Unless there is a tender for the sand of the Son river, the price of sand probably will not come down. Well now sand is coming from Bengal but the price is not making much difference. Alam is that in the midst of the recession that has prevailed since the Corona transition period, people are now facing sand shortage and inflation. The effect of sand inflation has started showing on the house construction work. Due to the closure of the construction work, the problem of livelihood has arisen in front of the people associated with it. People are hopeful that soon the price of sand will come down and then construction work will start.
