Inflation in Pakistan is still rising, with the price of lemons already exceeding that of beef.
About Sunday, ARY News reported on the price increase. According to the information, even the bachat bazaars set up around the country to supply comparatively inexpensive commodities have failed to deliver fruits and vegetables at acceptable prices.
Over the previous several days, the price of a kilograms of lemons has risen to Rs. 1,000-1,200. Greengrocers at Bachat bazaars are selling them at excessive prices, refusing to sell even a single lemon for Rs. 50.
On Saturday, the federal government revoked the Ramadan package at utility retailers, resulting in higher pricing for a variety of goods.
50 grams of cardamom now costs Rs. 18, 200 grams of red chillies cost Rs. 18, shampoo costs Rs. 14, and 100 grams of turmeric cost Rs. 4. Similarly, the cost of beans has risen by Rs. 10 per kg, while the cost of a liter of cooking oil from various brands has increased by Rs. 20.
