Digital Desk, Dhaka. Bangladesh’s government on Sunday launched a special sale of essential items at subsidized rates for millions of low-income families.
Tapan Kanti Ghosh, Senior Secretary, Ministry of Commerce, Bangladesh, inaugurated the special sales drive at a dealer point in the national capital Dhaka.
The campaign, run by Bangladesh’s state-owned Trading Corporation (TCB), aims to provide essential goods at subsidized prices to 10 million low-income families across the country, Xinhua news agency reported.
The Bangladeshi government previously stated that only cardholders would be able to purchase items from TCB-designated dealers and related other permanent selling points.
Under the scheme, each cardholder will get two liters of cooking oil, two kilograms of pulses, one kilogram of sugar and two kilograms of onions. To ease the burden of low-income households, the government launched a special drive to distribute basic items to select households as high energy and commodity prices are driving inflation in the country.
