*Ehsaas and CDA to run capital wide Ehsaas Rashan Registration Drive, Dr. Sania*
Islamabad: Senator Dr. Sania Nishtar, SAPM chaired a briefing together with Chairman Capital Development Authority (CDA), Amer Ali Ahmed on Ehsaas Rashan Registration.
The briefing discussed the registration drive plan with CDA to expedite the enrollment of Kiryana retailers and families across all fifty union councils of the federal capital.
“Currently, the Ehsaas Rashan Registration Drive is in full swing with district administrations of Punjab, KP, GB and AJK. Under the stewardship of Ehsaas, Chief Secretaries of participating provinces and district administrations are steering massive awareness campaigns to raise cognizance on Ehsaas Rashan. An engaging Rashan workshop will be held with CDA this week to kick off the drive across Islamabad”, said Dr. Sania.
Chairman CDA richly praised the Rashan programme of Ehsaas and reassured full cooperation to run a capital wide registration drive.
Under Ehsaas Rashan, 20 million families will be served a monthly subsidy of Rs.1,000 on flour, ghee, cooking oil and pulses. Currently, families are being registered through 8171 and Kiryana retailers through the website: https://ehsaasrashan.pass.gov.pk/.
Nationwide, Kiryana retailers need to have a bank account for Rashan registration. Retailers without bank accounts can reach out to the nearest branch of National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) for account opening.
The government will give subsidy amount and 8% specialized commission to Kiryana retailers directly in their bank accounts.
