KARACHI: In an effort to provide fruit and vegetables to Karachi residents at official rates, the city administration has introduced a ‘Home Delivery System’.
Karachi Commissioner Iftikhar Ali Shallwani announced that the city administration in collaboration with a private company has introduced the home delivery mechanism to ensure convenience to the residents of Karachi they will now no longer need to venture out for purchasing fruits and vegetables.
He said that this service would help the city administration supply people fruit and vegetables at official rates.
According to the plan, the Market Committee would provide these companies fruit and vegetables at the auction rate. The city government of Karachi last year had also launched an official app ‘Karachi Price List’ to help citizens to check prices of the daily use items, including fruit, meat, vegetables, poultry and grocery online before buying them.
The application was uploaded on Google’s Play Store and available for downloading. The step of the city administration was aimed at controlling prices across the metropolis.
