Nepal government has banned the production of most of the cement industries in Nepal as they were found to have been producing sub-standard cement, which could jeopardize the security and sustainability of constructions.
According to the Naya Patrika daily published today, the banned cement industries include Jagadamba Cement, Butwal Cement, Choudhary Group Cement, Rolpa Cement, Arniko Cement, Aanbhu Khairani Cement, Ghorahi Cement, International Cement, MJP Cement, Maruti Cement, Kailash Cement, Star Cement, Krishna Cement, KP Cement, Shree Cement, Om Cement and Eastern Cosmos Cement.
In Nepal, the implementation of consumer rights is almost at zero level because of the all-pervasive corruption and bribery that have even decomposed the moral power of political leaderships and the nation’s bureaucracy.
Although the government has informed media on the ban of cement industries, the process of selling and buying has not been stopped. These banned products are being used for making housing apartments and towers.
