The Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) is a program that helps families in Pakistan who don’t have a lot of money. Recently, they had a big meeting, the 58th Board meeting and the boss of the meeting was Federal Minister Shazia Marri. In this meeting, they decided to give more money to the people who get help from BISP. They said that the money they give every month, which they call “samahi wazifa,” will go up from 7,000 rupees to 8,750 rupees. This is good news for families who need this money.

The Latest Payment Method
BISP wants to make it easier for people to get the money they need. They are trying a new way to give money in four places in the countryside. They will put the money right into people’s bank accounts. If this works well, they will do it all over the country, and people can choose which bank they like for getting their money. This is because the government wants to make sure people can get the money they need quickly.
Expanding Support in Remote Balochistan
Some places in Pakistan are very far away, like Balochistan. It’s not easy for people there to go to the BISP office to get help. So, in the 58th BISP Board meeting, they decided to send mobile units to those faraway places. These mobile units will help people sign up for BISP and get the money they need. Also, the boss of a place called NADRA will help people get ID cards so they can join BISP and get help. This is because the government wants to help everyone, even if they live far away.

To make things faster and better, they opened 575 centers across Pakistan for people to join a program called NSER. This makes it easier for people to sign up for BISP and get the help they need. Also, they made a program for young people who had finished university. This program helps young people learn and also helps fight poverty.
Adapting to Economic Fluctuations
Sometimes, the prices of things go up, and people need more money. So, BISP will give more money, from 7,000 to 8,750 rupees, until January. Then, in March, people will get 8,500 rupees, and from April to June, they will get 9,000 rupees. This way, people can buy what they need even if prices go up. This is good for families who use BISP.
Expanding Coverage and Budget
BISP wants to help even more people. They made 472 centers to help more people join BISP. Also, the government gave more money to BISP, from 250 billion rupees to 400 billion rupees, which is a lot more. They also said that transgender women can join BISP without needing a special score. They just need to get an ID card from NADRA and go to the BISP office. This is because the government wants to help all kinds of people.
