Dr. Nishtar Had Thankfully Shared in a Post on Twitter
“The federal government had approved for removing 820,165 BISP beneficiaries. Using forensic data analysis, we found that they were ineligible for [income] support based on the criteria. I wish to thank the Cabinet for approving my proposal: exiting 820,165 @bisp_pakistan beneficiaries. This translates into saving of PKR 16 billion for the government annually.
The entire procedure for inclusion in BISP has been made apolitical. 10 years ago, BISP beneficiaries were decided through a survey. From now, beneficiaries will be selected using data from NADRA. BISP beneficiaries have been receiving Rs5,000 per quarter since 2011.”
