In a strategic move aimed at supporting citizens, the Prime Minister has announced the extension of the relief package for utility stores. This decision comes on the heels of the conclusion of the Ramadan package, ensuring continuous benefits for consumers.

Under this initiative, subsidies will be sustained on five crucial commodities: sugar, flour, ghee, pulses, and rice, with a specific focus on benefiting BISP beneficiaries. Sugar will be available at utility stores for BISP beneficiaries at a subsidized rate of 109 rupees per kilogram.

The Prime Minister’s relief package allocates approximately 3 billion rupees monthly towards subsidies, making essential items more affordable for the masses. Flour, an indispensable item for daily consumption, will be accessible to BISP beneficiaries in 10-kilogram bags at a discounted price of 648 rupees.

Furthermore, ghee, a staple in many households, has been priced at 393 rupees per kilogram for BISP beneficiaries. Additionally, pulses and rice will receive subsidies of 25 rupees per kilogram, further easing the burden on consumers.
