Factors Affecting the Price
Government Policies and Taxes
Bajri is mined in various locations across the country. So, the government of Pakistan has some policies regarding mining as well as transportation.
These policies combined with the taxes affect the cost. When the government increases the taxes on the companies, they increase the cost of bajri per cubic foot.
This is another important factor that affects the price of bajri in Pakistan. As this material is hauled from different locations in dampers and trollies, its cost depends upon the fuel as well.
When there is a hike in fuel costs across the country, the transportation costs of the material increase. Therefore, the price of bajri shoots up as well.
Supply and Demand
This is another critical factor playing a role in the cost of the bajri across the country. When there is a high demand for a specific type of bajri, and the supply is low, the brands increase its price of it.
Moreover, other factors such as weather changes also affect the mining operations. So, when there is rain, mining is paused, and construction work is at a peak, the demand crosses the supply. This leads to a hike in the price of bajri.
