CNIC is no longer required for the utility store subsidy

According to reports, on Tuesday, customers were no longer required to present a Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC) in order to make a purchase of subsidised goods at Utility Store locations.

With the intention of providing maximum relief to the disadvantaged during Ramadan, the decision was made to make it simpler for citizens to take advantage of government-subsidized packages. However, the purchase of wheat, sugar, and ghee is not covered by this ruling.

It should be mentioned that the government launched a Rs. 5 billion Ramadan Relief Package across the nation earlier this month to aid the less fortunate, and Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif increased the number of subsidised commodities to 19 in order to broaden the reach of the relief programme.

These products now include flour, ghee, sugar, cooking oil, tea, dates, besan, dal mash, dal mong, milk, drinks, and spices. The administration anticipates that by starting this scheme, residents’ wallets will receive some respite during Ramadan.
