Price ceiling on a cup of tea

It's impressive that RAK officials will regulate the price of a cup of tea sold in the hundreds of cafes and other outlets across the emirate.

Gulf News reports
Ras Al Khaimah: Municipal authorities have ordered all restaurants and cafeterias to roll back the price of tea to 50 fils from Dh1.

Municipal officials said cafeterias in the emirate arbitrarily raised the price of tea twice in the last few weeks.

A senior municipal official said the price was increased without consulting or notifying the concerned authorities.

"They have no right to do that," said the official.
