Ramzan package arrangements reviewed



Commissioner Amir Khattak chaired a review meet-ing on Thursday for procuring 600,000 metric ton-nes of wheat from farmers and providing people easy access to subsidised wheat flour bags under the Ramzan Package. He directed all deputy commis-sioners to make foolproof arrangements to extend Ramzan Package benefits to deserving people in the holy month of Ramzan. Khattak was informed that the software application for online entry and record keeping was available at all the 237 utility stores and 2,317 grocery stores registered with the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) in Multan divi-sion.

The commissioner said families with a monthly income of less than Rs 60,000 would receive three wheat flour (Atta) bags free. He said that subsidised atta bags were being provided through 210 trucking points, but the number could increase in the event of a buyer rush.—APP
