Kiln Owners Association declares shutdown of brick kilns in Central and Southern Punjab during Ramzan due to poor sales and production costs.
According to the latest news published on March 21, Meher Abdul Haq, the Secretary General of the Kiln Owners Association, has announced the closure of brick kilns in central and southern Punjab during the holy month of Ramzan due to the slump in sales and increased production costs.
The decision to shut down brick kilns in central and southern Punjab during Ramzan due to poor sales and production costs will significantly impact the construction sector, as it will cause a shortage in the supply of bricks. The kiln owners have pointed to increased prices of coals, petroleum products, transportation, and reduced sales as the reasons behind the shutdown.
Meher Abdul Haq stated that this industry is currently facing a recessive period, with many kilns shutting down operations, and the ones still in operation are selling products at reduced prices. After Eid, the brick kilns in southern and central Punjab will resume their operations. On the other hand, kilns in upper Punjab will keep on working as they had stopped operations in the winter season.
