A proposal to develop a comprehensive social program will be debated in the governing council today, Wednesday, November 2, according to President Chandrikapersad Santokhi. The people who genuinely need it will receive this program’s comprehensive set of measures, which will be subject to subsidies.
Those who are eligible for a subsidy will receive these deposits digitally on a card. These cover water, fuel, power, and many social benefits. By using an app program for payment transactions, too much money won’t circulate in society and have a negative impact on the exchange rate. The president asserts that it is time to help the people, who are suffering as a result of rising prices and other pressing challenges.
