Islamabad (Sahiwal Tv – December 25, 2019 – Shery) The government has decided to introduce “Ehsaas Kafalat Program” under the Benazir Income Support Program, to support lower income people in the country.
The program aims to further expand the scope of the BISP. Instead of unconditional financial support to women through the Benazir Income Support Program, the government will now pay for ration under the Ehsaas Kafalat Program.
In an exclusive interview to the US broadcaster, Dr. Sania Nishtar said that Prime Minister Imran Khan will inaugurate the new program next month.
BISP is the name of an organization that came into being through an Act so neither the institution is ending nor the law is going to be changed but we have brought improvement and transparency in its system to the organization.
Dr Sania Nishtar said that we have brought a new digital system of payment to poor families on a quarterly basis, which will bring transparency.
