Initially, Rs 2 billion is being allocated for the Program spearheaded by the Punjab Social Protection Authority (PSPA), and it will benefit 125,000 people in Punjab who are not in receipt of other social assistance programs. Under the Program, Rs 2,000 per month will be given to the beneficiaries having poverty score below 20.”
How the registration will go through?
The registration process for the program’s beneficiaries will begin on November 23 and it will continue for the next three months. The required credentials and how it would recruit accompanied by necessary details are still under the hood.
