Taking notice of the price hike for roti and naan, which directly affects the poor segment of the society, the ECC decided, at the advice of the Prime Minister, to reverse any increase in price of gas supplied to Roti tandoors.
The price being charged earlier, shall continue, which is a heavily subsized rate.
Earlier, it was clarified by FBR that no tax had been imposed on Atta. Therefore, there is no reason for any increase in Roti price at all, and the provincial administrations are being directed to ensure that no tandoor is charging a higher price for Roti or naan. No gas bills had been generated at higher rate in july, and any bill generated shall revert to original rate.
