Last week I took possession of 2 acres of land and fenced it using stone posts with 4 lines of barbed wire fencing, please find below the total expenditure. I erected 150 stone posts and purchased 250 kgs of 12X14, 100 gsm zinc coated MICON barbed wire. Please find below the cost.
Stone POsts: 6 feet x 4 inch post cost Rs.150/ post (150 x 150 = 22500) this includes transportation.
Barbed Wire: 250 kgs @ Rs.88/kg + 5% VAT (250 x 88 = 22000, VAT Rs. 1100)
Binding Wire: 25 kgs @ Rs. 137/kg + 5.5% VAT (25 x 137 = 3425, VTA Rs. 189)
Total = 22500 + 23100 + 3614 = Rs. 49214/- Approx Rs. 50,000/- (This excludes transportation of Barbed wire and travelling expences)
Labour Charges Extra.
When contacted contractors for erecting fencing to whole land, they coated Rs.75/- per post ( this includes erecting stone posts with 4 lines of barbed wire) then finalised to Rs.60/-
Finally I hired 2 labourers @ Rs.400/- per day and provided 2 times food and worked for 3 days to complete the fencing.
Labour Cost : Approx Rs. 3500/-
I have spent around Rs. 55,000/- for fencing, I did this as I had trouble with neighbour. Suggest people to go for LIVE FENCING.
