Government Announces Landmark Relief Package for Azad Kashmir

The Government of Pakistan and Azad Kashmir have introduced a comprehensive relief package aimed at addressing the urgent needs of the people in Azad Jammu and Kashmir. Valued at over Rs23 billion, this initiative includes significant reductions in the prices of essential goods and services, fulfilling longstanding public demands.

Key features of the package comprise a notable decrease in the price of flour, with a 40 kg bag now available at Rs1100, down from Rs3100. Additionally, residents of Azad Kashmir will now have access to 20kg of flour for Rs1000 and 40kg for Rs2000, offering much-needed relief to households.

In tandem with these efforts, the Azad Jammu and Kashmir Energy Department has announced reductions in electricity prices for both residential and commercial consumers. Residential tariffs range from Rs3 per kilowatt hour for consumption up to 100 units, increasing to Rs5 for 100 to 300 units, and Rs 6 for usage exceeding 300 units. Similarly, commercial users will benefit from reduced rates, with electricity priced at Rs10 per unit for consumption up to 300 units and Rs15 for usage exceeding 300 units.

Furthermore, in response to another significant demand, the establishment of a judicial commission to review the privileges of top government officials in Azad Kashmir has been approved, signaling a commitment to transparency and accountability.

The announcement of these measures has resulted in the cessation of protests by the Awami Action Committee, marking a significant milestone where all public demands have been addressed by the government. This proactive approach not only meets the immediate needs of the people but also undermines the agendas of anti-national elements, fostering unity and progress in Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
