As per discussion with Mir Afzal, It is 4500 Rs for 25 pounds bag. If 10 members buy 2.5 pounds each or then it is 450 Rs per person buying 2.5 pounds (1.1 kg). Or 5 members buy 2 kg then it will be 900 Rs per person per 2kg.

Those who are willing to share the amount and fertilizer can put up their consent here.
Its very brilliant idea. Mine vote is with you.

Our society, BSP recently arranged 25 kg of Murphy Minerals from UK. If an individual orders for one kg, he has to pay nearly Rs:4750 for one kg, then we decided to that society should import it. In this way it got very cheap ie Rs:1526 per kg, by FEDEX. I distributed in Hyderbad, Karachi & Lahore fanciers.

It would be more good, after some time when we have enough members to form a society.

We should include the shipping charges as well, so per unit price is adjusted accordingly.

We should include every penny, I remember that Fedex paid nearly Rs:45,00 as custom duty. Ok I try to sortout all charges of 25 kg bag of that stuff:

Product weight: 25 kg
Product price: 110 GBP
Fedex charges: 90 GBP
Cutom duties: 4500 Rps

Javed, I think we don't have to pay the Fedex & customs as we are buying it from its distributor in Pakistan.

Yes its the plus point. Fore distribution of packests in different parts of the country, you can use Shalimar coach or train service, they only charge Rs:50 to 100 upto 10kg, otherwise other courrier service would be too costly.
