The budget for FY12 is expected to reflect this commitment,".  Pakistan reported annual inflation of 13.04% in April (with prices rising 1.62% month on month), on inflation the Bank commented that "the average CPI inflation for FY11 is likely to remain between 14 and 14.5 percent, which is lower than the central bank's earlier projections,".


  1. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?
    I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. I am using Blogger by Google, but would recommend Wordpress which I will be switching to in a few months as it's more versatile.

  2. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one?

    Thanks a lot!
