The government is planning to hold the next phase of the Ehsaas Program in the next two weeks. In addition to the buffaloes and cows, the program will also distribute scholarships to low-income families. In its first phase, the program gave out smartphones to eligible women to help them in their financial transactions. In addition, to get a mobile phone, the beneficiary or his spouse must have a PTCL or mobile account of over 1000 rupees a month.
The Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) was launched by the PPP government almost a decade ago, with the goal of reducing poverty in the country. Recently, Prime Minister Imran Khan was questioned on his record on the impact of the Ehsaas Program on poverty reduction. He responded that the BISP was an open secret and the new name of the program was “Ehsaas Kafalat Program.”
The BISP program’s major differences from Kafaalat are that it will provide cash payments to women, while the Kafaalat program will use a door-to-door digital survey to identify beneficiaries. It will also open bank accounts for women, which will further contribute to economic empowerment. The BISP was a highly politicized program in previous years, and the Quaid’s picture on the Ehsaas Kafaalat card addresses that issue.
The BISP was initially referred to as the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP). However, due to political pressure, Imran Khan renamed the program to Ehsaas Kifalat in order to appease his ego and make people forget about Benazir Bhutto. The government of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf has now approved the creation of the Social Protection and Poverty Alleviation Division, led by Dr Sania Nishtar. The division supervises the functions of various organisations under the Ehsaas Programme. Among the organizations under the division are the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund and the Pakistan Baitul Mal.
Although Pakistan has made tremendous progress in reducing poverty, it still remains firmly in the grips of acute poverty. The government has taken the pledge of doubling the BISP budget, which is roughly 0.4 percent of GDP, to improve the lives of the poor. The IMF has supported this commitment, as it will strengthen the position of women in society. Further, the IMF has a long-term commitment to increase social safety nets and BISP is the first step toward that goal.

Emergency cash assistance
During a recent COVID-19 outbreak, Zahida Bibi lost her job as a housekeeper in Islamabad. Her four children depend on her income. In addition to losing her job, her husband is battling cancer and her family faces a desperate financial situation. In such a situation, Ehsaas emergency cash program became a digital lifeline. Through her mobile phone, she could access the program to apply for cash assistance.
The emergency cash program was introduced to aid the poorest citizens during the lockdown caused by Coronavirus. The Ehsaas program will donate Rs. 12,000 to each family affected by the coronavirus. The program is now open till April 19, 2020. Eligibility for the program is based on a user’s CNIC number. The program will be accessible through SMS, and eligible applicants will receive an SMS containing their application details.
The Ehsaas Program emergency cash portal offers real-time information and breakdowns by province, district, and tehsil. Moreover, the portal includes a video describing the program and the registration process. The video features SAPM Dr. Sania Nishtar explaining the program and how it works. It also highlights how you can use the Ehsaas Know Your Status portal to receive cash in the form of money.
The Ehsaas Program also aims at boosting the economy by providing livelihood and employment opportunities for the poor. It is being rolled out in 375 union councils of 23 districts to empower people by providing assets, such as livestock. The program will also provide agricultural inputs like the body of a Chingchi rickshaw. The funds are also available for setting up small enterprises, such as retail outlets.
The Ehsaas Program is an initiative of the government of Punjab to help the poor and needy with small businesses. Millions of people are talented enough to start a small business but lack of resources prevents them from doing so. The Punjab government has made this possible by launching the Ehsaas Loan Program. By registering with this program, you can get a loan to start your own business.
Once you have completed the registration process, you can now collect cash from ATMs and POS banking outlets without biometric verification. The registration process requires you to present your child’s National Identity Card, CNIC, and school admission receipt. These three documents will allow you to submit your application for the Ehsaas program. However, if you don’t have these, you can still register yourself.
Once you have completed the online registration process, you can begin the actual disbursement of cash. The BISP will provide your cash to those eligible to receive it through the Ehsaas Program. During the registration process, you should make sure that your CNIC is valid and is shared with at least three other beneficiaries. After this, you can start the process of applying for the Ehsaas.
The Ehsaas Kafalat Program is the government’s latest initiative. More than one million families have already registered for it, and it will begin to distribute benefits within the next two months. This program is for both students and parents, and is designed to help families in need of extra money to help them survive. It is a simple way to receive a scholarship for school. For more information, visit the official website.
The Ehsaas Kafalat Programme will begin April 5, 2018 in all provinces across Pakistan. The aim of the Ehsaas Programme is to help tens of millions of people improve their standard of living.
