Pakistan: Prices of food items at utility stores spike as Ramzan Relief Package ends

| @indiablooms | 08 May 2022, 05:13 pm

Islamabad: Prices of different food items have gone up in Pakistan once the government's Ramzan Relief Package came to an end recently.

According to the new rate list issued by the Utility Stores Corporation (USC) on Saturday, the discount of Rs10 per kg being offered on dal mash and dal moong has been reverted while the price of gram flour has risen by Rs20 per kg, reports Dawn News.

The Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the previous Imran Khan-led government had approved a Ramazan relief package worth Rs8.3 billion in March, under which 19 kitchen items were to be supplied at subsidised rates through the utility stores, the newspaper reported.

Pakistan celebrated Eid last week.
