The Federal Government’s unprecedented Kissan package of Rs 1.8 trillion will bring agricultural revolution in the country and help meet ever increasing food requirements of a growing population.
This was stated by Coordinator to the Federal Tax Ombudsman (FTO) Meher Kashif Younis. Addressing a delegation of women psychiatrists from University of Kohsar led by Shaista Mobeen, he said that for the first time since the creation of Pakistan such a huge incentive had been offered to farmers to meet their needs without cumbersome procedures, according to a press release issued here on Wednesday.
The FTO coordinator said that it was high time that growers took full advantage of the package and ensure timely cultivation of crops for better yields. “The Kissan package covers provision of subsidized electricity and fertilizers, free seeds in flood hit arable areas, and interest free production loans,” he added. “It is the government’s responsibility to ensure timely distribution of the offered package throughout the country, irrespective of any political alignments,” he said.—APP
