"We have decided to suspend production for at least 25days from today till March 5 to clear the huge accumulation ofwall tiles," President of Morbi Wall tiles Association,Rajubhai Patel, told PTI here today.

The tile units had increased their prices by over tenper cent to factor in the hike in fuel and raw material.
