ISLAMABAD, Sep 21 (NNI): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday chaired a meeting to review the process to bring transparency and organize the provision of subsidy to various sectors in the country.
The meeting reviewed the reforms proposed for the subsidy system in the country.

The prime minister further said that a non-deserving person availing facility of subsidy is a burden on the national exchequer and vowed to bring reforms in the process to eliminate it.
The prime minister also agreed upon the recommendations of the think tank for bringing reforms in the system and said that a road map keeping in view these suggestions should be devised.
