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.
The Sindh government announced on Thursday that it will release Rs580 million for the distribution of food supplies to daily wage workers in the province. According to Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, Rs20 million will be allocated to each district in the province. The amount will be given to district commissioners of each union council who will then distribute ration among the lower-income groups.
