Punjab Government Launches SMS Based Price Information System

Technology is a useful tool to improve governance; keeping that in mind the Government of Punjab has launched a short messaging service (SMS) based price information service for the residents of Punjab.

This service has been launched for all districts of Punjab.

This SMS based service will provide daily updated prices of grocery items on the user’s cell phone.

The mobile user will have to enter his/her city name and send the message to 80024 (more details on the mechanics of the service are provided below). The resulting reply will give price details of around 36 essential grocery items including ‘Atta’, Rice, ‘Ghee’, Apple, Chicken, Mutton, Sugar, Milk, Onions, and many other items. This service is launched as an attempt to educate consumers with the price list issued by Government of Punjab.

An app for prices would also be a good idea.

 Mechanics of the Service:

  • Type ‘Price’ <space> ‘City Name’ and send SMS to 80024
  • For instance if you want to receive prices for Lahore and surrounding areas type ‘Price Lahore’ and send it to 80024.
  • An SMS to 80024 is charged at Rs 1.43 inclusive of Tax.

On a related note, just in case if you experience any difference in prices for your local market, then go ahead and register complaint with Punjab Government at their toll free number 0800-02346.

Comment by Assad Ali on February 27, 2014 at 10:58pm

wow, vvvv good initiative the Govt of Punjab.

ballay ballay lahore kay dahi bhallay

may be this would be nice if every retailer had an ID displayed at the shop/cart which you can report back in case of overpricing.

pr aik problem hy k price list bhoot high hy, 

and the second is that  k es main Noodles tu hain hi nai expensive tu honi hi thi na, and na hi neela thotha hy, 

by the way, overprice ki report ham android k through kr sakty hain , is there any other application from where we report for overpricing??
