The article reports on an increase in the demand for imported paper and pulp in India. The paper industry in India has been long neglected, and the government's plantation policies have been inconsistent. The government banned all logging in the late 1990s, and this left the domestic industry with no choice but to rely primarily on imported pulp. Even if paper prices increased in India, manufacturers sometimes saw their margins squeezed because of a greater increase in wood pulp prices.
