MSMEs plan protests against raw material price hike
The Micro, Small and Medium-scale Enterprises (MSMEs) here are looking at staging protests to draw the attention of the government towards the high raw material prices.
“The prices keep fluctuating. Two days ago the prices of copper products went up ₹90 a kg and dropped by ₹10 or ₹15 after that.
Can we change the prices of the products every day ?
We are unable to quote a price for our products. There is a lot of uncertainty.
We asked for appointment to meet the Ministers and have made several appeals. But there is no response from the government,” says M.V. Ramesh Babu, president of the Coimbatore District Small Industries Association.
