Karachiites have once again started to feel the inflation on the rise. In order to bring some relief to the citizens, provincial authorities on Wednesday issued directives to fix the prices of naan and chapati in the city up to Rs 10.
A notification was issued by Commissioner Karachi Iftikhar Shallwani’s office reading that the price for naan and chapati were fixed under Sindh Essential Commodities Price Control and Prevention of Profiteering and Hoarding Act 2005.
As per the notification, tandoori naan (paira 120 grams) is set at Rs. 10 whereas tandoori chapati/roti (paira 110 grams) is set at Rs. 8.
Furthermore, these fixed rates are to be implemented across all tandoors in Karachi. Moreover, all tandoor owners were directed to place digital weighing machines at the shops, enabling consumers to check the weight of the paira.
They were also asked to place visible rate cards at their stalls/shops as well. The authorities have restricted them to wrap the items in newspaper or plastic bags and have advised them over hygiene purposes.
