The Sindh government has decided to fix the retail price of sugar at Rs71 per kilogramme, retracting its earlier assessment of Rs61 per kilogramme. District Coordination Officers (DCOs) have been directed to complete all arrangements immediately to ensure sugar supply at the final retail price, according to a press release issued by the Chief Ministers House. Stern action will be taken against people found selling sugar at rates higher than the prescribed price, the statement added. Meanwhile, the provincial government is yet to decide whether a special stall will be setup for providing sugar at subsidised rate or whether it will be made available through utility stores at a cheaper rate. A spokesperson for the Sindh chief minister said that the government will take stiff action against hoarders and profiteers.
