The prices of essential kitchen items like ghee and cooking oil have decreased in Pakistan, providing relief to consumers due to improved economic policies and reduced inflation under the new government. This reduction in prices is a welcome relief for households dealing with increased living expenses.

Cooking Oil, Ghee, and the Latest Price in Pakistan 2024

Recent price adjustments have notably reduced the cost of popular brands.

  • Brand A Cooking Oil: Now priced at Rs 525 per liter, reflecting a decrease of Rs 75.
  • Brand A Ghee: Reduced by Rs 25, bringing the new price to Rs 500 per kilogram.

  • Brand B Cooking Oil: Reduced by Rs 70, now available at Rs 380 per liter.
  • Brand B Ghee: Prices dropped by Rs 60, making it Rs 370 per kilogram.

The price decrease provides relief to consumers affected by previous inflation spikes.

While the recent price reductions are positive, the future is uncertain. The federal budget for the fiscal year 2024–25, starting in July 2024, includes tax measures that could potentially reverse these price cuts. As part of its agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the government aims to boost revenue by Rs 2,000 billion through tax reforms.

One notable change under consideration is a proposed 1% hike in the sales tax rate. If implemented, this adjustment is likely to result in higher prices for essential items such as ghee and cooking oil. The extent of these price changes will hinge on the final budget structure, but consumers should anticipate potential cost increases for these staple products.
