One such scheme is the Benazir Income Support Program (BISP), also known as the Benazir Kafalat Program. In all of Pakistan’s districts, women living in extreme poverty receive a PKR 14,000 stipend every six months through this program. At ATMs, specially-designated retail locations across the country, and specific camping locations across the country, biometric verification is used to disburse monies. Bank Alfalah is a Benazir Kafalat Program partner bank that processes transactions from Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. When compared to Balochistan, Islamabad, Punjab, and Sindh, where Habib Bank is the official financial institution.
If you think you could be qualified for the Benazir Kafalat program, here’s how to find out.
The Benazir Kafalat Program uses data from the National Socioeconomic Registry (NSER) Survey to ascertain who is qualified to participate. By inputting their Computerized National identification Card (CNIC) number or survey token number provided at registration, families surveyed for the program can check their eligibility for the program and the progress of their disbursement online via the 8171 web-portal.
The Benazir Kafalat Program uses 8171 to communicate with households that have been polled about their eligibility and the distribution of cash.
Benazir Kafalat Program will only contact you via 8171. Any text message claiming to be from the National Socioeconomic Registry (NSER) or offering you money after completing a survey is likely a scam. Avoid communicating with them and never give out any personal information, like your name, CNIC number, address, or bank account information. You can contact the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) at 0800-55055 if you ever get any suspicious text messages. The survey is also completely free of charge.
