Sugar and flour offered at utility stores in Lahore are being wholesaled at higher prices associated to the market, leading to isolated stores.

At utility stores, the price of a 10 kg flour bag for general customers is set at Rs1500, while the same bag is accessible in the market for up to Rs900. For Benazir Income Support Programme users, flour is available at Rs648 at utility stores.

Also, for general consumers, the price of sugar per kilogramme at utility stores is Rs155, although in the market, it is Rs145 per kilogramme. For Benazir Programme users, the price of sugar is Rs109 per kilogramme. Since Ramadan, the stock of sugar has been stopped.

General consumers have been stopped buying flour and sugar from the utility stores because of the higher prices.

Now, only registered users of the Benazir Program come here, and they also have complaints.
