Mobile phone prices in Pakistan have surged due to an 18% GST imposed in the 2024-25 federal budget, causing widespread concern among consumers.

The most significant impact is on high-end phones, particularly those priced at Rs 200,000, which have increased by Rs 36,000. This dramatic hike is alarming for many buyers. Phones costing Rs 150,000 are now Rs 19,000 more expensive, adding to the financial strain on consumers.

Mid-range phones have also been affected. Devices previously valued at Rs 100,000 have increased by Rs 18,000. Those priced at Rs 50,000 have experienced a Rs 9,000 hike. Even more affordable phones are not spared, with a Rs 4,000 rise for devices that used to cost Rs 25,000.

The new GST has significantly increased mobile phone prices, affecting both the market and everyday users. As prices rise, mobile device affordability becomes a major concern. This trend is expected to influence consumer buying behavior and market dynamics in Pakistan.
