Ogra denies submitting summary recommending increase

A day earlier, the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) denied that it had sent a summary to the government proposing a hike in the price of petroleum products.

"Reports circulating on media regarding an increase in prices of petroleum products are based on speculation," said a spokesperson of the authority.

The authority was responding to reports that it has recommended increasing the price of petroleum products by Rs11.95 per litre from January 16.

Sources said that the authority has also recommended increasing the diesel price by Rs9.57 per litre.
