Raj Scott of nerves
Over the past three years, Saurashtra has become the largest market for marble.
Marble may be the first choice when building temples and grand havelis,™But now there is no more, because many buildings are decorated with granite.
The number of marble dealers shown in the new appeal rose nearly 250, from 40 to about 100 three years ago.
The annual turnover of the Rajkot marble industry is about 4 rupees, more than twice as high as three years ago.
Despite the discovery of marble in mines around anbagi, Gujarat, Rajkot\'s dealers prefer to bring these materials from neighboring Rajasthan.
The price of marble ranges from 40 rupees to 300 rupees per square foot.
In addition, the price of Italian marble is 500 to 600 rupees per square foot.
In most cases, this marble is the first choice for temples and luxury apartment kitchens.
Granite is also popular, with prices ranging from 70 rupees to 400 rupees per square foot.
Due to the increasing interest in marble, the local mosaic tile industry has been affected.
But on the other hand, as marble and tiles compete with each other to capture the space of mosaic tiles, the demand for tiles is high, and mosaic tiles are the traditional industrial Saurashtra area.

Those associated with marble units believe that the turnover of marble will be much higher if there is no competition or challenge for tiles.
In addition to local units that supply marble and granite to builders, some prefer to go to Rajasthan for local sourcing, which ensures better quality and economic prices.
In addition to marble, another emerging option is granite imported from Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.
Several people bought the building together or collectively and went to Rajasthan and other states.
If this is taken into account, the turnover of marble is 100 higher than the gap-
