The Consumer Affairs Authority says that the bakery owners will not be allowed to increase the prices of bakery products citing recent price rise of domestic gas.
The CAA said although the price of a 12.5kg gas cylinder was increased by Rs. 245, the market price of a cylinder is still less compared to the price of 2014/15 period.
Accordingly, the CAA said the recent price hike in the gas cannot fuel price hike in food items.
