The interim government of Pakistan has made a big stride in offering succor to people whose lives have been turned upside down by ever-escalating food and fuel costs. They have cut down on their price under the Ehsaas Rashan Riayat program regarding a range of ghee and cooking oil in Utility Stores. Nawaz Sharif has launched this move, which has offered relief to people suffering from high cost of living who are fed up with rising inflation.

CPI-based inflation was estimated to be at 31.4% between September 2023 and September 2022, according to the PBS. By the end of August, inflation was as high as 27.4%, and it was apparent that citizens were facing an unparalleled hike in the cost of living. If anything, the situation became worse than it had been in September 2022 whereby inflation stood at about 23.2 percent.

These householders know very well that it’s a fact that everything becomes expensive starting with commodities due to this inflation. Food insecurity has escalated while people strain to put their meals on the table. To highlight this emergency, Sharif introduced the Ehsaas Rashan Riyast program which saw a great decrease in the prices of ghee and cooking oil.

A considerable drop in ghee prices is one of the major highlights of this initiative. The price has been reduced by Rs 60 per KG and it is selling for Rs 394. Consumers have been spared from the previous Rs455 price tag per kilo as the least famous and unknown brands charged way more than that. This will help minimize household food bills by enabling people to afford necessary meals.

Such initiatives will be necessary during tough economic times to enable people to feed their families without losing their lives. This indicates the commitment of the government to provide good services for the well-being of the people.


In conclusion, the reduction in ghee and cooking oil prices through the Ehsaas Rashan Riayat Program is a welcome relief for the people of Pakistan. These price cuts will have a positive impact on household budgets, making essential cooking ingredients more affordable and contributing to better food security. Nawaz Sharif’s initiative is a step in the right direction toward easing the burden of inflation and ensuring a better quality of life for all.
