What happened:

 In a bid to provide relief to the low-income households of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the government has decided to launch the Insaf Food Card, which would provide citizens having less than 25,000 rupees per month money for purchasing essential food items. An MOU between the KP Food Department and the Bank of Khyber has been signed, and initially, one million households would be provided with 2100 rupees per month under the scheme. 

Details:

The Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa said, “After the Sehat Card Plus Scheme, Food Card was another historic and pro-poor project of PTI government through which the provincial government has fulfilled yet another commitment; made to the people.” It is pertinent to mention that after Khan’s ouster, the inflation in Pakistan has soared, and different food item prices have also risen.
