Commissioner reviews commodities prices


KARACHI: Commissioner Karachi Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui on Wednesday directed the task force formed to control commodities prices to take strict action against profiteers.

Members of the task force informed the meeting chaired by commissioner Karachi about the situation of commodities prices. They said effective policy of the administration and posting of assistant commissioners in Sabzi Mandi had yielded positive results. The steps taken by the administration in Sabzi Mandi helped in controlling fruit prices. They were taking action to improve that further.

The meeting decided that all the officers of the administration and members of task force should take strict actions to control prices of milk, chicken and other commodities.

“The prices fixed for general store items were fixed after consultation with the representatives of traders’ associations. They should abide by the agreement and impose the prices,” Siddiqui said.
