In April 2024, the Punjab government under Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz Sharif introduced the Negahban card, also known as Guardian Card in Urdu. By providing social and economic support, this project seeks to improve the quality of life of persons with disabilities (PWD) in the province.

What are the benefits of the Negahban card?

While the specifics of the program are still being worked out, the following is an idea of ​​what the Negahban card could provide:

  • Financial assistance: To help people with disabilities meet their living needs and expenses, monthly stipends or one-off awards may be offered.
  • Discounted services: With the card you can achieve massive savings on needs such as electricity, health and transport.
  • Assistive devices: Improving accessibility to wheelchairs, crutches, prostheses, hearing aids and other necessary equipment is the main goal of the program.
  • Educational opportunities: People with disabilities who want to pursue academic aspirations may be eligible for scholarships or educational grants.
  • Skill development: There are additional options for people with disabilities to participate in programs that promote economic independence and increase employment.
