Punjab government decreases roti price to Rs16

Orders officials to ensure strict implementation of decision

The Punjab government decreased the roti price from Rs20 to Rs16 across the province, chief minister Maryam Nawaz said on Sunday.

In a post on social media platform X, she said that all districts and departments concerned in the province have been issued directives related to the new price of the roti. He directed them to ensure strict implementation of the decision.

On Saturday, Maryam advised her team to decrease the rate of roti after cutting the price of flour. The rate of a 20kg flour sack fell from Rs2,800 to Rs2,300 after a fall of Rs500 in the price.

Asim Raza, the Pakistan Flour Mills Association chairman, attributed the slash in prices to the decrease in the price of wheat.

It is expected the price of a 20kg flour sack would further decrease by Rs300 after the arrival of wheat from Punjab in the market.
