Just after 24 hours, Prime Minister Imran Khan ordered to bring down prices of naan and roti to their previous rates throughout the country, the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) on Wednesday (July 31) reverted the gas tariff for non-commercial tandoors to the pre-June 30 levels.
Adviser to Prime Minister on Finance Hafeez Shaikh chaired the meeting and approved measures to bring down the prices. The decision was taken on a proposal submitted by the Ministry of Energy to revise gas prices for roti tandoors. The ECC will provide Rs1.51 billion to subsidise such gas connections.
The committee directed provincial governments to restore the rates of naan and roti to the pre-June 30 level and warned provincial governments that the federal government will withdraw the subsidy if the prices are not restored.
The ECC also reviewed a report on the price of wheat. According to the report, the price has been reduced by Rs50-60 per 40kg after a ban on its export.
