No package is needed for changing \parskip, it is a regular length
which can be changed by \setlength{\parskip}{6pt} or even simply by
\parskip=6pt. If you use a script with many diacritical marks above
and below, which is a matter of matras in Indic scripts, you might
need to increase \baselineskip usually by using \linespread. This is
even more important for Urdu. Again, no package needed.
