Lahore Crackdown on Non-compliant Roti and Naan Prices

lahore crackdown on non compliant roti and naan prices

The Lahore district administration is taking action against bakeries failing to adhere to government-mandated prices for roti and naan. Seven tandoor owners were arrested, and fines were imposed on 19 others for violating pricing guidelines. Inspections were conducted on 296 tandoors, resulting in fines for non-compliance. Despite approved rates of Rs16 for a 100-gram roti and Rs20 for a 120-gram naan, some bakeries have not complied. The Muttahida Naanbai Association has opposed the reduced prices, delaying implementation. President Aftab Gul expressed the association’s concerns in a meeting with the deputy commissioner.
