Raising material costs for Class C contractors in building low cost houses.
Class C contractors in villages are facing raising costs to build low cost houses. The material costs particularly cement and hollow slabs make up 40% of the construction costs.
The raising cost issue has been the use and transportation of raw materials far from the site of construction. The house to be build will use cement and hollow slabs of materials manufactured far the site of construction. These added more costs to the use of materials to build the house.
