The federal government increased flour prices at utility stores on Friday, with a 10-kilogram bag costing Rs90 more.
According to a statement issued by the Utility Stores Corporation, the price of flour has been raised by Rs 9 per kilograms, resulting in a price increase of Rs 90 for a ten kilogram bag and Rs 180 for a twenty kilogram bag.
The 20-kg bag, which was previously priced at Rs800, will now be priced at Rs980, while the 10-kg bag will be priced at Rs490, up from Rs400 before.
Regional accounts officials have been instructed to visit warehouses and check that prices are implemented in utility retailers.
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif previously made an unusual announcement by stating that he will cut the price of flour even if it means selling garments.
PM Shehbaz Sharif promised to lower flour costs in the province while speaking to a public meeting of the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) in Bisham tehsil of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s (KP) Shangla district.
