The government has planned to introduce a new system titled Decision Support System for Inflation (DSSI) to rein in unbridled price hikes and its causes.

The Ministry for Planning Development and Special Initiatives will launch it after the approval of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The Decision Support System for Inflation will enable policymakers – National Price Monitoring Committee, provincial governments and district administration – to take an evidence-based policy decision and address causes of inflation.

The DSSI is featured with providing market-level information, city-wise comparison of prices, time-series data at commodity level etc. One of the salient features of DSSI is that it provides a comparison of rates issued by the deputy commissioner and those collected by PBS on a weekly basis.
