The National Movement for Protection of Consumer Rights says the Consumer Affairs Authority has taken steps to increase the price of a 50kg bag of cement by Rs.100.

The Movement said the Consumer Affairs Authority granted five cement companies the opportunity to increase the price of a 50kg bag of cement, without taking into consideration the expenditure.

The Movement added the decision was reached prior to the resignation of the Former Chairman of the Consumer Affairs Authority.

Accordingly, the price of a bag of cement was increased to Rs.1,095.
