Necessary steps being taken to ensure provision of flour at fixed rate

LAHORE, Jan 08 (APP):Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervez Elahi said on Sunday that all necessary steps were being taken to ensure the provision of flour at fixed rate at provincial and district levels.

According to official sources, the CM said that subsidy was being provided to common
man through Ehsaas Programme so that people of urban and rural areas could be facilitated.
He said the Punjab government was ensuring provision of inexpensive flour to deserving
people through Ehsaas Programme.

Entry in Ehsaas Programme could be made through CNIC to get targeted subsidy on flour, he said and added that daily official quota of flour had been doubled.

Pervez Elahi said that sale points had also been doubled across the province.
He said that 1,840,000 bags of 10 kg flour would be available on daily basis in Punjab
at government fixed rate.

Ch Pervez Elahi said that from tomorrow 26,000 tonnes of wheat would be released
to flour mills more than their demand.

Increase in government wheat quota would reduce prices of private wheat and flour
reasonably, he added.
