- Electricity Unit (Avg)Rs.6.75 Rs.11.25 67%
- USD RATE RS.60/- Rs.86/- 43%
(The above stated sharp increase in prices is due to increase in price of paper & board in international market, increase in $ rate, continuous load shedding as well as increased rates of electricity & petroleum prices, duties structure change affecting increase in Excise & Sales tax rate, Income tax rate increase on imports, imposition of 15% G.D. duty, 1% RD) plus other allied clearing expenses.
We are making the supply at old rates to you from almost last three years and at present these rates are much below the cost price i.e. on loss. Keeping in view the above mentioned factors, you are requested to kindly increase the rates of following items. These rates will be valid for next one year.
