Ministry of Science and Technology Decides To Launch its own mineral water line
The ministry will provide mineral water at a low cost without having a profit margin for public welfare.
The Ministry of Science and Technology has decided to launch its own mineral water line. The product will be introduced in collaboration with the Pakistan Council for Research in Water Resources (PCRWR) and any other private company which would help ensure clean drinking water at a reasonable price.
According to the Minister of Science and Technology Chaudhary Fawad Hussain, the provision of bottled water at the price of one or two rupees is not practical as packaging and transportation costs are high. However, it is possible to provide mineral water at a lower price compared to other brands in the market.
The ministry will provide mineral water at a low cost without having a profit margin for public welfare. The federal minister came up with this idea to prevent citizens from consuming unsafe drinking water that is currently available and is being provided by various brands at a high price.
The service will be launched in Islamabad initially. The mineral water will be served initially at government offices and later will be available for commercial purposes.
