The cabinet has endorsed a relief package for Ramadan

The Federal Cabinet has greenlit a Ramazan Relief Package worth Rs. 7.4 billion, aimed at providing assistance to the public during the upcoming holy month of Ramazan.

This package is designed to offer subsidies to targeted beneficiaries of the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) through Utility Stores.

Under the initiative, discounts will be offered on 19 essential items available at official utility stores. Basic necessities such as flour, sugar, ghee, cooking oil, rice, and pulses will be among the subsidized items. Additionally, products like dates, besan, milk, beverages, and spices will also witness price reductions.

The implementation of this package is scheduled to commence at Utility Stores on March 4. The Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the cabinet had given its approval to the package last week.
