The official launch of the program is scheduled for the second day of Ramadan across the province. Deputy Commissioner Dr. Hassan Waqar Cheema specified that each ration bag contains 10kg of flour and 2kg each of rice, sugar, ghee, and gram flour.

Commissioner Aamir Khattak instructed deputy commissioners to meticulously verify the Nighaban Ration Programme beneficiary lists, emphasizing the need for a separate list for families no longer meeting the criteria for assistance. The 1,200 Pindi households received dry rations after their data was cross-checked through a mobile app developed by the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB).
