Phase-I of Ehsaas Emergency Cash to continue till July: Sania

ISLAMABAD-Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Poverty Alleviation and Social Protection Dr. Sania Nishtar has said first phase of Ehsaas Emergency Cash Programme will continue till next month.

Talking to private channel, she said an amount of Rs12,000 was being provided to each deserving person to purchase edible items for their family members.

Dr Sania said second phase of the programme will take some time to start.

To a question about the relief programme for Sindh, she said Sindh is enjoying a lion’s share from Ehsaas Emergency Cash Programme.

She made it clear that we should not link Benazir Income Support Programme with Ehsaas Emergency Cash Programme as both the programmes have different methodology and limits.
