ISLAMABAD: The Oil prices based commodities in Pakistan are set for a lofty fall — up to 57 percent — on Thursday (today) for a month inferable from about 30pc drop in the global oil showcase.
Despite the fact that a choice would be reported in discussion with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Thursday, the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) has turned out up to 57pc cut in different items‘ costs with impact from May 1 dependent on existing assessment rates.

At present benchmark, Brent unrefined costs have plunged by a gigantic 30pc to $20 a barrel from about $27 per barrel on March 25 when Pakistan last amended oil costs. The Brent unrefined cost has tumbled by practically 65pc since February 25. This is the steepest fall in oil costs in ongoing history.
Likewise, the ex-warehouse cost of light diesel oil (LDO) has been assessed for one month from now at Rs37.94 per liter rather than Rs62.51 at present, a 39.3pc or Rs24.57 per liter cut.
The legislature has just expanded the general deals charge (GST) on all oil-based goods to a standard pace of 17pc in all cases to create extra incomes.
