Ramzan Packages 2016

The Punjab Government has announced the Ramzan Package 2016 based on Rs. 5 billion. According to the government authorities, this amount of money is subjected to the circulation of flour to all the parts of Pakistan. This flour bag of 10 kilograms shall be given for Rs. 290 at Ramzan Bazaars. Though the government announces such packages every year, their practical implication is null. When people actually go to bazaars, they do not find these flour bags available and even if they are available, they are not on sale in the prices, announced by the government.

The government has also announced that these Ramzan Bazaars would be set up across the province to serve every community. In order to accommodate people to break their fasts collectively at public places and on roads, there would be around 2,000 Dastarkhuans established in the holy month.

On the other hand, the government has also ensured that the prices of sugar, ghee and chicken during Ramzan would be lesser in Ramzan Bazaars in comparison to the free market. Fruits, vegetables and pulses would also be sold at subsidiary prices at the Ramzan Bazaars. These packages are ensured through digital price boards.

Despite the fact that the government comes up with the Ramzan package every year, on grassroots level, implementation of this system is inefficient. People do not get all the essential groceries even at these bazars at suitable rates. With fruits and vegetables, people get the worst quality of even the basic ones in Ramzan.
