PM launches cash disbursal programme for workers

Prime Min­ister Imran Khan has launched the cash disbursal programme under the Ehsaas Emergency Cash for workers who are worst affected by the coronavirus crisis and have become jobless. The prime minister has committed that for each rupee provided by donors, Rs4 will be committed by the government.

Over 3.4 million applications of jobless people have so far been received through the Ehsaas Labour Portal. The existing principles and processes that have been deployed for Ehsaas Emergency Cash will be fully applied in the use of the Prime Minister’s Covid-19 donor funds. Tehsil-wise number of beneficiaries, bank disbursement details, accounts credited, and money withdrawn will be posted on a real time basis.
