The Petroleum Division Saturday clarified that there would be no increase in gas price for domestic consumers and ‘Roti Tandoors,’ rejecting some media reports about the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC)’s decision on revised- tariff summary of the commodity.
“In the first summary by the Petroleum Division for annual gas price revision, the ECC decided to keep the gas tariff unaffected for domestic and Roti Tandoors from July 1, 2019 levels,” the Petroleum Division said in a press statement.
It regretted that a certain section of the media reported the decision of the forum [ECC) erroneously, which was subject to ratification of the Federal Cabinet by next week.
As per the proposed and actual figures, there was no change in the existing price of Rs 1,283 per Million British Thermal Unit (MMBTU) gas for the Commercial sector.—APP
