The federal government has chosen to extend the Prime Minister’s assistance Package, which was slated to expire on June 30, in order to bring assistance to the general public.
According to the details, the administration has decided to keep the Prime Minister’s Relief Package in place to tackle inflation.
According to sources, a budget of Rs 30 billion has been set aside for the Prime Minister’s package. Subsidies will be granted at utility stores for five key products in the next fiscal year, including sugar, ghee, flour, lentils, and rice.
PM Shahbaz Sharif had approved the continuation of poor-people subsidies the day before. According to sources, a plan to allocate more than Rs 1.3 trillion for subsidies in the 2019 budget has been recommended.
