My purpose is not to advertise any particular dealer however If anyone needs contact of supplier PM me I will share.

In past I have seen that phone numbers / websites are seen as hidden advertising and deleted.

Also I want other people to share prices here so that I can also benifit.

All these things are commodities so should be same at all the dealers however dealers take advantage of ignorance specially if we do not know to what level we can negotiate.

For steel my experience is best way is to go to website of primary steel producer such as Tata / JSW / SAIL and search the Bangalore dealer from there and call him. There are only 1 or 2 dealers per brand listed in Bangalore urban district by these companies and they give best prices as on that day.
All the other friendly neighborhood shops try to push products from other brands which are generally endorsed by local celebrities or find heavy advertising behind BMTC buses and autos.

80% of people ( including contractors and architects) I talked to never asked price of Primary steels ( Sail / Vizag / Jsw) assuming they must be very costly going by pricing of Tata Tiscon however prices are at times lower then other brands.

In my case the pricing I got for Indus ( 56K per tonn) was close to Tata ( 57.5 K) and higher then JSW ( 53.5K).
Tirumala ( 52K) / Meenakshi (53K) were at similar price as JSW so I just bought JSW ( Till now 8 Tonnes purchased for footings , Plinth , retaining wall and tank) thinking it is best and cheapest among primary steels.

However later I found that SAIL and VIZAG are even cheaper so for all the slabs and columns planning to go with SAIL / VIZAG

Interesting point : I was saw some posts here from 2014 - 2015 and even then price of cement and steel was almost same. In few case even higher so inflation in material prices is contained.
