Govt announces ‘Petrol Relief Package’ for motorcyclists, small car owners

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif announced on Sunday that the low-income segment of the country will be given a subsidy of Rs50 per litre

The government has announced a ‘Petrol Relief Package’ for motorcyclists and small car owners.

Petrol is currently being sold at Rs272.00 per litre.

On the direction of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the government made the announcement ahead of Ramadan aiming to provide a major relief to the inflation-stricken people.

The announcement was made after the premier chaired a review meeting on the relief package in Lahore on Sunday.

“Petroleum relief will be given to low-income consumers who have motorcycles, rickshaws, 800cc cars and other small cars,” PM Shehbaz Sharif said.

Premier added that the programme would be initiated soon and a comprehensive strategy would be formed with the cooperation of relevant departments for effective implementation.

Motorcycles, rickshaws and small cars are used by low-income people and the petroleum subsidy would give relief to the poor, he added.

“The government is making effort for all possible help to the poor people despite its economic difficulties.”

Minister of State for Petroleum Musadik Malik briefed the meeting about the strategy for providing petroleum subsidies to the low-income segment of society.
