Regal’s Legal Reason

The reasons for these continuous price hikes are easy to understand given the current situation. The Pakistani rupee is constantly depreciating against the dollar, followed by skyrocketing raw material prices and, finally, record-high shipping expenses. All of this has resulted in price increases in Pakistan, and we don’t anticipate any relief for consumers in the foreseeable future.

And the general public is the one that suffers the most as a result of all of these price increases. Despite promises from both the former and current governments to combat these hikes, it appears that the issue will not be rectified.

Meanwhile, the government decided in April 2022 to appoint a private company to perform a forensic investigation of the prices to see whether the rising dollar rate and raw material costs support the escalating car prices. The Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association (PAMA), on the other hand, was not pleased.

According to PAMA Director-General Abdul Waheed Khan said that Pakistan has a free market and a market system. Because Pakistan does not have a communist-style centrally planned economy, the government cannot set automobile prices.
