Bahrain payouts to start before Ramadan
Manama, June 26, 2013
Low-income families in Bahrain will start receiving the anti-inflation allowances before the beginning of Ramadan - backdated to last January, said a senior government official.
It will first benefit households whose monthly incomes are below BD300 ($791) and then those below BD700, Social Development Minister Dr Fatima Al Balooshi was quoted as saying in the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
The ministry is now preparing a list of eligible citizens from those already registered with the financial assistance and anti-inflation allowance schemes.
Citizens whose monthly incomes range between BD700 and BD1,000 are required to access the website fsupport.gov.bh from July 10 and input their own bank accounts.
Eligible recipients falling under this category will then receive SMS on their mobile phones.
Owners of commercial registers and more than two real estate properties, with no income registered with the official authorities will submit their applications from September 30.
Eligible recipients will be contacted to receive the payments, according to the report. – TradeArabia News Service
