Ehsaas Rashan Riayat Program
Prime Minister Imran Khan has announced the launch of Ehsaas Rashan Riayat Program which is an attempt to counter inflation in the country. The PM said, “Eligible families will get a subsidy of Rs 1,000 per month on the purchase of flour, pulses, ghee/cooking oil.” This program is termed ‘revolutionary’ in the history of Pakistan. According to the Special Assistant to Pakistan, Sania Nishtar, the first phase of the program has been completed, and approximately 9.2 million deserving families have been sent a message regarding the availability of the program.
Moreover, Anjum-e-Tajaran, Bank of Khyber, and Bank of Punjab are also expected to facilitate the Ehsaas Rashan Program which will, in turn, result in the inclusion of more people in the program.
The Ehsaas Rashan Riayat Program is surely going to help many families. Moreover, with Ramadan ahead and the expected price hikes on the commodities, this program will provide relief to people.
