The Government of Pakistan, in collaboration with Utility Stores Corporation (USC), has launched an important program under the Benazir Income Support Program (BISP). With this measure, it is intended to reduce the burden on families with low incomes by providing basic necessities at greatly reduced prices.

It was announced by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in August 2023. It gives subsidies on wheat flour, ghee, sugar, beans and rice to deserving families. Its management is the responsibility of the BISP and the USC. This program is available in more than 4000 utility stores in Pakistan.
