The Hyderabad district administration has set up a system allowing people to get themselves registered for rations via SMS. They have to send an SMS with the word ‘Ration’ and their CNIC number and send it to 88434. They will then get a token via mobile which will allow them to receive the rations. If it’s a repeated CNIC number we get a message, said one official.
The UK High Court has denied funds amounting to £35 million to Pakistan by issuing a judgement in favour of the Nizam of Hyderabad. Nizam of Hyderabad had made claims in 1954 to the funds lying untouched in a London bank account since 1948, which were given to the then Pakistan high commissioner by the Finance Minster of Hyderabad State.
