The Spokesperson says that the news about increase in POL prices is baseless as the authority has not advised the ministry for any increase in POL prices.
The Spokesperson said that no increase was suggested by the authority so far.
They reported that that the PM would give approval first after which these prices would be effective. Ogra recommended an increase of Rs 11.95 per litre in the rates of petrol and Rs 9.57 in the price of diesel. The Ministry of Finance would announce the decision after consultation with Prime Minister Imran Khan.
