Sindh Govt Ramzan Package Rs 5000 Cash

In an effort to provide substantial relief to the residents of Sindh during the holy month of Ramzan, Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah unveiled a comprehensive relief package worth 22 billion. This announcement was made during a high-profile meeting focused on price control held in Karachi.

The Ramzan Package

The key highlight of the Ramzan package is the government’s decision to distribute a sum of Rs 5000 in cash to approximately 60% of the province’s households earning a minimum wage of Rs 32,000 monthly. This initiative is set to benefit around 3.5 million households across Sindh, easing their financial burdens during the fasting month.

Price Control and Anti-Hoarding Measures

Addressing the issue of price hikes and hoarding, the Chief Minister directed a stringent crackdown against hoarders and profiteers who exploit the surge in demand for essentials during Ramzan. He emphasized the importance of strict enforcement of government-fixed rates for daily commodities to prevent undue inflation and ease the public’s financial strain.

Ensuring Uninterrupted Power Supply In Ramazan

Acknowledging the significance of Sehr and Iftar times during Ramzan, Syed Murad Ali Shah issued orders to ensure there would be no load shedding during these critical hours. He specifically instructed the power supply companies, including K-Electric, Hyderabad Electric Supply Company (HESCO), and Sukkur Electric Supply Company (SEPCO), to maintain an uninterrupted electricity supply throughout the province during the holy month.


The Sindh government’s Ramzan relief package is a testament to its commitment to supporting the province’s economically vulnerable segments. By combining financial assistance with measures to ensure stable prices and reliable electricity, the initiative aims to provide a more comfortable and spiritually fulfilling Ramzan for the people of Sindh.
