Retailer Fined for Selling Flour Below Official Rate in Karachi

In Karachi’s Jodia Bazaar, the oldest and largest wholesale market for essential goods in the country, a retailer faced a penalty for selling flour at a price lower than the official rate.

The Karachi Wholesaler Grocers Group (KWGG) expressed dissatisfaction with the fines imposed on the retailer and warned of a possible strike in protest against what they see as unfair treatment.

A team from the Deputy Commissioner’s office visited the market to inspect prices and food items being sold at various shops in Jodia Bazaar. During the inspection, they found a retailer selling flour at a lower price.

According to Wholesaler Grocers Chairman Abdur Rauf, the shopkeeper was selling flour for Rs115 per kilogram, which is below the official rate of Rs123 per kilogram.

Rauf criticized the fine imposed on the shopkeeper, stating that selling cheaper flour to poorer citizens is being treated as a crime in the country.
