Sindh cuts down per kg flour price to Rs 33.50

The Sindh government Tuesday revised downward the prices of wheat for the flourmills that the provincial government warned must reflect positively on the prices of wheat flour (Atta) on the retail market.
The provincial food department, through issuing a notification on Tuesday, slashed the prices of 100-kilogram wheat bag by Rs 50 to Rs 2,800 from Rs 2,850.
Tuesday’s cut automatically set the ex-mill price of wheat flour at Rs 32 per kilogram and its retail price at Rs 33.50.
The food department directed the concerned officials to ensure availability of “Atta” to the consumers at the revised rate.
The provincial government asked its field staff to keep a vigilant eye on the prices of wheat flour ensuring that the flourmills were selling the daily-use kitchen item at the newly-fixed prices.
“Any laxity in the regard would not be tolerated and strict action would be taken against the concerned staff,” warned the notification issued.
