Some Iranian families reportedly ruled out of Subsidy Reform Plan
Azerbaijan, Baku, Apr. 3/ Trend F.Milad/
The Iranian government has not remitted the balance fee of the first phase and the second phase of the Subsidy Reform Plan to the accounts of some certain families, meaning that they have been excluded from receiving cash subsidies, Mehr news agency reported.
Some beneficiaries of the cash-subsidy program have been asked - via a phone alert -to voluntarily give up their checks because they are too "well off," even as prices soar and purchasing power drops due to a recent currency devaluation.
The Tehran residents reported receiving an SMS alert on their cell phones last week, signed by the subsidy reform organization. The message asked them to log on to the cash-subsidy website and delete themselves from the list of beneficiaries.
