In much of Pakistan, the climate is tropical or subtropical, semi-arid or desert, but in the north there are also: an area near the mountains which is quite rainy, a cold mountainous area, and a frigid area on the peaks of the Himalayas. In the cold half of the year, from late autumn to early spring, the north is reached by weather fronts of Mediterranean origin, which cause rainfall in the lowlands and snowfall in the mountains; in spring (ie March and April), the clash between air masses can cause thunderstorms and strong winds; in summer, from July to mid September, the country is reached by an offshoot of the Indian monsoon, but in most of the country it is not able to bring heavy rains, while in the western part the monsoon doesn’t arrive at all. However, the warmest months are those that precede the monsoon’s arrival, especially June, which is very hot in plains and hills, up to quite high altitudes.

Inflation is the rate at which the general level of prices for goods and services is raised. It is measured for ten big cities of the country usually, especially for the federal and provincial capitals.

There are 53 essential items measured to determine inflation level, besides expenses such as transportation and housing.

According to Inflation Monitor by State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), CPI Inflation on year-on-year basis in federal and provincial capitals of Pakistan showed a mixed trend during June.

Inflation in Other Capitals

Among the provincial capitals, the city of Lahore witnessed the second highest percentage of inflation at 4.9 percent, followed by Peshawar at 3.9 percent and Quetta at 2.7 percent.

It is ironic to think that Karachi, being the economic hub of the country with a dense population, reported the lowest rate of inflation. Inflation in Karachi is less than half of the inflation of Islamabad where price-hikes can be controlled much easily due to its geographical size.

​It should be noted that inflation is higher in capitals of different countries.​

​Karachi is also ranked as the fourth cheapest city in the world.​

Different Situation in May

In May, Lahore observed the highest inflation rate of 5.5 percent. Islamabad was a close second with 5.0 percent and Karachi with 4.4 percent. The inflation rate in Peshawar and Quetta was much lower at 3.7 percent and 3.2 percent respectively.

In the coming months, inflation will remain range bound. However this largely depends on the provincial and local governments and their policies.

SBP is projecting average CPI inflation in the range of 4.5 – 5.5 percent for the starting financial year. This projection is explained by lower than anticipated increase in international oil prices, recent behavior of CPI inflation in June, stable administered prices and lower inflationary expectations
