Complaints Of the People

                                    Utility Stores are established and organized by the Government of the Punjab and the purpose of them is to provide quality food to the common man at the subsidized rates bu still the people complains in different manners.

1) Subsidized quality the goods

                                                                          People complain about the quality of the oil and the other item that are available in the store are sub-standard and many of the items that are most important like Sugar ,oil , Flour etc, some times not available maximum.

2) Approach Of a Common Man

                                                The relief that is provided to a common is out of reach of because some of the stores are of at distance and for common man it is very difficult to travel first and than to bear the charges of the Utility store.Mostly the Strength is of needy people and very poor families it is impossible for them to approach.

3) Large Populated Area and Demand

                                                                          Many cities of Punjab like Lahore 340 Utility Stores are working but still there is big need of it because the demand is too high and large populated areas in Lahore Specially in the ares of Samanabad and Nishter Town,Where the population is large and the demand is too much.

4) Sugar

                Utility store managers are actually selling the items at higher prices and there in no stock of Sugar is available at the stores and whereas in open market the Sugar is available as compare to the Utility stores and people are buying the Sugar from the open market rather than the stores.

Initiative Of the Government

                                                                The secretary for the Industries and the Production has informed the National Assembly that the government will open more 1000 stores across the country and this project is worth 2 billions.The secretary said with the opening of those utility stores the total number of the stores will reach to 2000.

Utility stores as a part of Business

                                                                     Utility stores are making there business rather than providing relief to the people and they also refused to sell the sugar at lower cost to the people.The survey was conducted to know very shocking information in which the store keepers are giving sugar to those who are buying other items from the store otherwise the owners refuse to give it.

                 The purpose of the utility stores is to provide the relief to the general public and specially ti those people who belong to very poor family and for them to save some penies and buy something else to brought up his kids and the parents.The better quality goods and the daily use items provide in cheap and lower rates.

Utility Store Consumers 

                                                            The consumers of the utility stores are saying that the management should improve the quality of the items available to them rather imposing the restrictions like 'Buy Other items to buy the sugar' . The officials can demand from the Government to improve the quality of the items being sold at the Stores.
