A private news channel reports, based on sources, that utility stores won’t provide discounts on three crucial items as part of the government’s Ramadan relief package.

The news channel stated that utility stores have opted not to reduce the prices of sugar, flour, and ghee as part of the Rs. 7.5 billion Ramadan relief package.

Despite the government’s announcement of the Ramadan relief package, the prices of sugar, flour, and ghee are set to remain unchanged, as reported by the news channel.

As per the specifics provided, a 10-kilogram bag of flour will cost Rs 648, sugar for Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) beneficiaries will be Rs 109 per kilogram, and ghee will be available at Rs 365 per kilogram under the Ramadan relief package.

Utility store management clarified that the choice to not lower the prices of sugar, flour, and ghee was due to the fact that BISP beneficiaries already obtain these items at discounted rates.
