Market Price Monitoring

Monitoring on Market Prices of Essentials​

Market price monitoring of essential commodities and services is one of the regular activities of CAB. The objective of the market price monitoring is to urge the government to take appropriate measures against unanticipated price-hike and to keep the prices of commodities within the purchasing capacity of the common consumers. The data collected through price monitoring are also used for determining inflation rate and preparing annual report on the prices of essentials. This report is also used by different national and international organizations to adjust salaries and allowances for their employees.
