Business General

Presiding over a cabinet meeting, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah said that Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has given clear instructions for the issuance of Kissan cards and preparing a plan to carry out development initiatives in every district.

CM Murad constituted a committee with the Minister of Irrigation, SMBR, and Secretary of Agriculture to start developing data and submit their recommendations. 

The chief minister said that Kisan Cards would be issued to farmers benefiting from various government programmes. He added that it aimed at consolidating the recipient’s information for transparent and efficient implementation of these interventions. 

Murad said that his government would develop a digital platform and provide all district administrations with user logins to enter details of farmers in their jurisdictions. 

The information added to the system would pertain to demographics, contact details, crops and landholding patterns, livestock, irrigation system, and mechanization.

He said that this initiative would result in an appropriate allocation of schemes to the right farmers, ease in broadcasting messages to the larger masses, and the creation of a centralized database.
