The federal government of Pakistan's cash-based initiative to reduce poverty is called the Benazir Income Support Program (BISP). The program, introduced in July 2008, is the nation's largest security initiative. 5.4 million recipients received payments totaling Rs 90 billion in 2016. Yousaf Raza Gillani was commissioned by President Asif Ali Zardari to set up the Benazir Income Support Scheme in 2008. The scheme is named after Benazir Bhutto, the late former Prime Minister and wife of President Asif Ali Zardari in 2007.

What is the amount of money given?

After confirming their eligibility and qualifications, the funds are distributed to needy low-income families below the poverty line. The Government of Pakistan has raised the amount of money provided to impoverished families from Rs 8500 to Rs 9000 to make them feel more comfortable in meeting their needs.

What is the background of BISP?

Since 2005, high inflation and rising food and gasoline prices have devastated the purchasing power of many Pakistani families. To cope with the decrease in supply, BISHOP was created to solve this problem. By giving money directly to women in households, BISP seeks to empower women and promote economic development.

The Benazir Income Support Scheme has been implemented in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, Sindh and Punjab. The initiative is also operational in the Capital Territory of Islamabad and the federally administered regions of Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
