Families are being given Rs12,000 under the programme
Two men have been arrested for charging Rs500 from each person who came to collect the Ehsaas programme fund in Tando Allahyar on Friday.
The police said that these men were working as agents and telling women that they will make the process easier for them if they gave them a certain amount of money.
Different families will be given Rs12,000 under the federal government’s Ehsaas programme. It seeks to help people who have lost their livelihood because of lockdown.
The government has set up more than 17,000 booths from where eligible families can receive this amount.
