WEB DESK: In a significant move aimed at providing relief to consumers, the state-owned Utility Stores Corporation (USC) has slashed the price of ghee by Rs60 per kilogramme nationwide.
According to the spokesperson for USC, the price of ghee, which previously stood at Rs455 per kilogramme, has now been reduced to a more affordable Rs395 per kilogramme.
Additionally, registered users under the Benazir Income Support Programme can avail ghee at a subsidised rate of Rs325 per kilogramme.
This decision comes after a previous increase in ghee prices on August 11, when Utility Stores raised the cost by Rs25 per kilogramme, selling it at Rs423.
Moreover, for beneficiaries of the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP), the price was further hiked by Rs53, making it a total of Rs353 per kilogramme.
According to ARY News, a recent notification clarified that only individuals eligible under the BISP will receive targeted subsidies on utility store products.
