The administration of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has stated that it will begin distributing Insaf Food Card to residents of the entire province during the first week of June.
The decision was made in Peshawar during a meeting that Chief Minister Mahmood Khan presided over as the meeting’s chairperson.
During the meeting, those present were informed that a memorandum of understanding (MoU) had been signed for the execution of the Insaf Food Card plan between the food department of the provincial government and the Bank of Khyber.
It was estimated that the program would have an annual cost of 25.5 billion rupees, and the provincial cabinet had already allocated funding toward this purpose.
As part of the program, households that are deemed eligible will get a monthly stipend of Rs 2,100 to use toward the purchase of necessary food items.
The food card program will be beneficial to a total of 5 million people in the province, which is equivalent to approximately 12 percent of the total population of the province.
The conference also came to the conclusion that the people should continue to receive subsidized wheat flour.
During his remarks at the event, Chief Minister Mahmood Khan referred to the Insaf Food Programme as another hallmark project of the KP provincial administration, following in the footsteps of the Sehat Insaf Card.
He continued by saying that the KP administration is dedicated to providing the greatest possible relief to the people.
