Benazir Income Support Program

    It is one of the most stupid programs in recent times. Equally stupid and vying for number one position is Sasti Roti by Punjab Government.

    Check the website:
    http://www.bisp.gov.pk/

    "The allocation for the current fiscal year is Rs. 70 billion to provide cash assistance to 5 million families which constitutes almost 15% of the entire population. Thus the program aims at covering almost 40% of the population below the poverty line."

    70 billion.
    1 - No body from poor public can check if it reached the people or not.
    2 - 70 Billion can be used to create some employment opportunities (new medium businesses)
    3 - What monthly payment of 1000 to 5000 to families can do to alleviate poverty?
    4 - In no way this is sustainable for poor! They would REMAIN dependent on this bheek.

    I dont know when our leaders would get some sense and do something REALLY good!!!

  2. 1-There is no check and balance system to do this.
    2-Agreed. This would be planning for long term benefits. Creating jobs including profits that could be distributed as a micro finance based loan for small scale business. A real benefit (gift) for those who don't have means to have one.
    3-Only temporary relief. This way poverty certainly cannot be alleviated.
    4-Correct. People will always be on a lookout for alms.

    Benazir income support should be named national exchequer support to the PPP ...
    its not been funded out of BB's personal account but funded by national exchequer ...

    Amount of 1000 will not quench the fire of poverty. Just keep on waiting for the next rs 1000 and do nothing.

    As per the website http://www.bisp.gov.pk, 40% people live below poverty line that is around 72 million people. Divide this 70 billion on 72 million and you would get a REAL JOKE OF THE DAY.

    For how many months this 70 billion rs would be helping this 72 million people below poverty line?

  7. Check it out how much of this program titled BISP is already being funded by the west.
    Why name this after BB. Don't they have anything else to do except getting funded by foreign funds and naming it after a clan of bhuttos.

    All investment in this and other program is from gov of Pakistan.
    How come it is called Benazir Income Support Program?

  10. What and how much is behind this program? Who is really benefiting?
    Why all in the name of one who had nothing to do with 10% financing done by USA and the rest by Pakistani exchequer.
    Was it a deal that back fired after when she was killed and now those funds have to be dumped so why not in the name of...
    Not a way to pave for elections. They have to kill another BB while they have none this time
    .

    @Ravvi
    You have raised a very good point, undoubtedly it is nothing but an absurd program to ameliorate the poverty. If they (Zardari & his cronies) were sincere, this huge amount could have used for some beneficial programmes. But unfortunately the purpose of these programmes is not to give relief to the poor-stricken people but to fill their all-time hungry stomachs. Sasti roti is also the apology for sasti roti which is not available to poor people. Under the pretext of sasti roti Punjab government has digested and burped billion rupees. The lack of patriotism creates greed in politicians. If they were really sincere to Pakistan they would have not joked with badly victimized people of Pakistan in the name of these stupid and ridiculous programmes.

    I am sorry to see this all.
    No corruption is possible in this program.
    Money given to a person is very small and distributed direct through banks on NADRA identification.
    Technically misuse is not profitable.
    This is a good program
    You can change its name later.

    You support criminals like malik riaz who is a friend of zardari and this program belongs to PPP therefore what ever they do is corruption proof and even if there is you don't have b@lls to call spade a spade.

  22. I am not sure if it should be called 'bheek', in US jobless persons get about 100$ monthly.

    Yesterday, there was a news that 12 to 15 Lac spurious beneficiaries had been enjoying the BISP. Questions:
    1 - In whose pocket went this money? Farzana Raja? Or with Mr. 100%?
    2 - Why national media took it so lightly? No news in the newspapers today?
    3 - Any action on this in future? Or Pakistani public simply should "stay calm"; sabr krain Allah karam karai ga.
    Qomi paisa gya hai yar aur kitni maddon men ja raha hai. Koi rone wala hi naheen.
    Karwan ke dil se ehsas e zian jata raha
    Benazir zinda baad.

    This is the modified system of Zakaat , Zakaat is for helping poor directly to the individual .
    I support this program if the money reached to the poorest of the poor

    zalaan,

    I support this program if the money reached to the poorest of the poor

    It means you're not sure whether the money is reaching to the poorest or not.

    This system is very transparent more then Zia's "Zakaat System " .there may be some flaws but most of the money are given to the right people .

    I know it,The system is very transparent more than Zia"Zakaat System " because it uses name of Banezir instead of Zia.
    Isn't it some kind of political answer.

    haha .... This is my honest opinion and what i have seen in the ground .

    You can check your self , all beneficiaries are on Nadra database and they have ATM cards and withdraw money directly . You can go to the branch of the bank where these poor people come every month to get their money and ask them .

    Opposition and Media is trying hard to show this as scam but unfortunately their wish still not fulfilled .

    O yes I know some people from Zia's "Zakaat committee" ,all of them below to Jamaat-e-Islami ..Andha Bantay raiwriyan apnay apnon ko

    بچے نو سال میں قران پاک حفظ کر لیتے ہیں ، انھیں بھی ناک صاف کرنا نہیں آتی ہے

    This is the modified system of Zakaat

    Zalaan is talking about Zakat and Quran. What hapend Zalaan? These words don't sute you.

    Benazir Income support program is ka nam tau aisay rakha hay jaisay us kay Swiss accounts main say paisay logon main taqseem kar rahe hoon.

    BISP program sari industries bund karwa kar logon ko bheak dainay wali bat hay. Aisy Govt Support program sirf Marzoron aur umar rasida logon kay liye hotey hain jo National GDP main contribute karne kay kabil nahin hote. Inhion nay tau topi drama lagia hua hay.

    Is say kuch industries laga detay us say economic activity bhi generate hoti aur employment bhi barti. Logon ko basic amenities main subsidies detay aur income level barhanay say aik fard gar ka kei logon ko support kar sakta hai.
