Sindh to pay daily wage labourers through mobile wallet app

The Sindh government is going to be paying daily wage labourers who are out of work due to the coronavirus lockdown through a mobile wallet application. The money will be given against their CNIC number and people will be able to get their money by showing their ID card and phone at mobile shops. Requests for registration are being submitted and the government has asked NADRA, the FIA, FBR and State Bank for help verifying them.

People who have travelled abroad, except for Hajj or pilgrimages, will not be eligible for this scheme as well as the ones having over Rs10,00 in their bank accounts.
