ISLAMABAD: Petrol prices in Pakistan will remain unchanged for September 2020 after Prime Minister Imran Khan rejected the proposals of the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) according to the Finance Division.
The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) had presented two proposals to increase petrol prices in Pakistan for September 2020 however, both were rejected by the premier.
According to the first proposal, it was recommended that the petrol price be raised by Rs. 3.5 per litre while price of high speed diesel was to go up by Rs. 3.75 per litre.
The second proposal recommended that petroleum levy be increased to Rs. 30 for both petrol and diesel. This would have raised petrol price by Rs. 8 per litre while price of high speed diesel would have gone up by Rs. 9 per litre.
However, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the recommendations made by OGRA could not be approved under current situation therefore, petrol prices in the country will remain unchanged for September 2020.
