    Plus the transport cost from harbour to the warehouse and then to the wholesaler/retailer plus the transport from the retailer to our houses which could be an increase of another 20 to 40 rupees per bag depending on the number of bags

    We can't control the prices in the international market, but however I didn't see any steps to cut down the unwanted expenses by the Government.
