Sindh govt preparing relief package for small-scale businesses: minister

Karachi (HRNW) Sindh Minister for Energy Imtiaz Sheikh said that the provincial government is preparing a relief package for small-scale businessmen who have suffered financially during the lockdown imposed to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

The number of COVID-19 cases is nearing the 10,000-mark in Pakistan and 191 patients have died so far. The country has been in a state of lockdown for a month.

In Sindh, traders have been in talks with the government to either allow them to open shops or give them financial relief.

“As far as I know, the chief minister has approved giving relief in taxes to traders,” said Sheikh. “[The chief minister] had also discussed with the Centre about giving financial compensation to small-scale businesses.”

For this purpose, the Sindh Revenue Board and Excise and Taxation Department will be taken aboard as well.
