New Payment: Benazir Kafalat Program give Rs. 3,000 to Rs. 8,500 Per Person in 2024

The main initiative of BISP is the Unconditional Cash Transfers (UCT) program, commonly referred to as the “Benazir Kafaalat Program.” It was first launched in 2008. The UCT/Kafaalat initiative has expanded so much since its start that it is currently Pakistani’s biggest single cash transfer program. 

The program’s short-term goal was to protect the poor, especially women, from the negative consequences of inflation, food crises, and weak economic growth by giving qualifying families financial support. The program’s long-term goals were to empower women and end severe and chronic poverty, as outlined in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Aims of Benazir Kafalat Program

Selection of People for this Program

Using the National Socio-Economic Registry (NSER) survey and the scientific Proxy Means Test (PMT), beneficiaries of the “Benazir Kafaalat Program” are chosen and identified. The PMT is used to determine the well-being level of a household on a scale of 0 to 100. The BISP Board determines the PMT cut-off score for eligibility based on the available budgetary space. The Benazir Kafaalat Program provides cash support to all households meeting the required PMT cut-off score. On September 23, 2021, during its 52nd meeting, the BISP Board decided to maintain the current PMT cut-off score of 32. However, households with a differently abled member must meet the PMT cut-off score 37 to be eligible.
