Govt announces refund for pilgrims who performed hajj recently

The Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) government is going to make a second refund to the pilgrims who performed Hajj under the recent government scheme. As per details, the government has decided to distribute Rs. 800 million, saved from hajj expenses, among 53,000 Hajj pilgrims. The refund is being made from the savings on train fares and accommodation.

In its first refund policy, the ministry had returned Rs. 5 billion to the pilgrims, with each one receiving up to Rs. 58,000. The refunds were due to cheap residential buildings and savings on transport and other expenditures in Saudi Arabia.
