The Balochistan government has formally launched Kissan Cards to provide maximum relief to the farmers of the province.
Talking to APP on Saturday, Balochistan government spokesperson Farah Azeem Shah said that the government had issued Kissan Cards to provide assistance to the farmers in boosting their yields.
Under the programme, Shah said, registered farmers would get 50% subsidy on fertilisers, seeds and agri-equipment to ensure food security by increasing agricultural production.
Through the initiative, she added, the government in collaboration with Habib Bank Limited (HBL) would provide subsidies to the registered farmers, which would help increase crop yields as well as develop the agriculture sector in the province.
Shah stressed that the provincial agriculture minister was putting in his best efforts to improve Balochistan’s agriculture sector, and the provincial government had also initiated work on the agricultural transformation plan to convert the traditional techniques into a climate-smart approach.
