He said the amount of the subsidy was equal to 5 percent of these families’ total income, according to data from the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics, the Average Pakistanis spend five percent on transportation.

He said the scheme is expected to benefit more families of 14 million people, of whom 7.3 million are already registered under BISP.
