Sources say that the rate of levy on petroleum products may be increased to Rs 50, which will be approved in the meeting of the Economic Coordination Committee.

It should be noted that Pakistan’s talks with the IMF will be held in the third week of this month, before these talks were supposed to start yesterday.
