September News: Updates on Ehsaas Rashan 4500 Subsidy Program
Ehsaas Rashan Program:
The Ehsaas Rashan program was established by the Pakistani government with the aim of alleviating poverty within the country. Its core objective revolves around delivering essential rations to economically disadvantaged individuals on a monthly basis. Initiated by former Prime Minister Imran Khan, the program provides recipients with either a monthly Ehsaas Rashan subsidy of 2000 rupees or a 2000 rupee discount on their monthly grocery bills, catering to the needs of the deserving and marginalized.
Beneficiaries of both the Ehsaas Program and Benazir Income Support Program are eligible to receive a ration subsidy of Rs. 2000 through this program, while those who don’t qualify for the Ehsaas Program can avail a discount of Rs. 2000 on their monthly groceries.
The program was temporarily suspended during the month of Ramadan, and eligible participants were granted 30 kg of free flour by the Government of Pakistan. However, with the conclusion of Eid, the government has recently announced the revival of the Ehsaas program, factoring in the cost of development. During a meeting, the government also emphasized the program’s continuation in Punjab.
Previously, individuals could obtain a free rashan worth 2000 rupees through this program. However, due to rising inflation and increased budgetary requirements, the program’s offerings have evolved. While the previous process involved sending one’s National Identity Card Number 8123 for eligibility verification, the government has introduced a new procedure for registering. Now, individuals can access a 4500 rupee rashan subsidy.
Although this ration was typically collected from designated utility stores, the procedure for acquiring it has been revised. The Ehsaas Ration Subsidy 4500 will soon be facilitated through HBL Konnect outlets. However, the specifics of distribution are still under confirmation.
The Ehsaas Rashan program has been reinstated, accompanied by discounts on essential commodities to commemorate Pakistan’s third year of Independence Day. The discounts encompass Rs. 648 for 10 kg of flour, Rs. 353 per kg of ghee, Rs. 100 per kg of sugar, and Rs. 25 per kg of pulses. Unregistered individuals are encouraged to apply, with rations designated for those whose poverty score is less than PMT 40.
