Very nearly a month back, The Ministry of Petroleum endorsed the deregulation of the CNG. This essentially implied the proprietors of CNG stations would have the capacity to set costs as per their own particular choice.
So now the CNG pumps owners are taking advantage the costs has expanded once and now they are expanding once more. From this News, the CNG proprietors make the costs of CNG by Rs. 2 for each kg crosswise over Pakistan yesterday night with no earlier cautioning or warning.
Currently, the cost of CNG for Region Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Rawalpindi, Gujar Khan and Islamabad is Rs. 75.82 for every kg. After increasing the price of CNG in different areas of Pakistan for Rs. 2 for every kg, Now it will be sold on new rates which are Rs. 77.82 for each kilogram.
In other Regions of Pakistan like Sindh and Punjab areas the current costs of the CNG are Rs. 71 for every kg but now after the expansion, it will now be sold at Rs. 73 for every kg. CNG owners are increasing rates in all over the Pakistan with no earlier notice.
70% of the CNG stations in Pakistan are selling CNG at the new rates and no government officials are asking them. This can be dangerous for the public because pumps owners will increase the cost of CNG whenever they want, So government should take some action against this.
