BISP: Final Phase of Benazir Kafalat & Taleemi Wazaif Payments Begins”

The Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) has started the final phase of payments for the Benazir Kafalat and Taleemi Wazifa programs. Beneficiaries who have not received their payments in the earlier phases will be included in this last phase, which covers 23 districts across Sindh, Punjab, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Combined Payments for Kafalat and Taleemi Wazaif

Many beneficiaries are unaware that payments for the Benazir Kafalat Program and the Taleemi Wazifa Program can be issued simultaneously. For instance, a woman from Punjab recently received a total of PKR 14,500, which included PKR 10,500 for Kafalat and PKR 4,000 for Taleemi Wazifa. To check the status of these payments, beneficiaries should use the BISP online portal and their CNIC numbers.

Payments Issued at Campsites

Previously, BISP payments were distributed at retail shops, where beneficiaries faced deductions and long wait times. To address these issues, BISP has shifted payments to designated campsites. Here, beneficiaries receive their payments under strict supervision, ensuring no deductions and providing necessary facilities such as seating, clean drinking water, and cooling fans.

Advice to Beneficiaries: Timing of Visits to Campsites

Naveed Akbar, a BISP official, advised beneficiaries to avoid visiting campsites during the first 10-12 days after receiving the notification from “8171.” This is to prevent overcrowding and ensure a smoother process. Beneficiaries can rest assured that their payments are secure and can be collected at a later, more convenient time.

Facilities at Campsites

To accommodate beneficiaries, especially women, the government has set up various facilities at the campsites. These include cold, clean water, shaded areas, seating, and cooling fans to ensure a comfortable waiting experience in the extreme heat.
