MUMBAI – Hindalco Industries Ltd has cut the prices of its aluminium ingots, billets, and wire rods by 1,250 rupees per tn, or less than 1%, with effect from Wednesday. This follows a near 2% price hike taken on Tuesday. 


These price changes are in line with the movement in the three-month futures of aluminium on the London Metal Exchange, which is generally used as a global benchmark.


The contract has risen more than 11% compared with the end of the December quarter, and Hindalco has raised the prices of its products by around 8% during the same period. With the latest revision, the company's products are at 183,250-194,350 rupees per tn.


Shares of Hindalco Industries today closed at 331.80 rupees, up nearly 2%, on the National Stock Exchange.  End
