2 Good News Regarding January Benazir Kafalat and Taleemi Wazifa

In the realm of social welfare programs, January 2024 brings forth two significant pieces of good news for the beneficiaries of the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP). These updates promise noteworthy changes in policies, impacting the eligibility criteria and disbursement processes. Let’s delve into the details of these positive developments that are set to affect individuals across Pakistan.

Overhaul in Benazir Income Support Program Policies

Overhaul in Benazir Income Support Program Policies

PMT Score Criteria Modification for Ehsaas Rashan Riayat

The first wave of good news revolves around a transformative shift in the Benazir Income Support Program’s eligibility criteria. Individuals with a Poverty Scorecard (PMT) score exceeding 32 faced disqualification, irrespective of the number of years they benefited from electricity assistance. This change has left some long-time program participants disheartened due to their improved financial conditions leading to their exclusion.

Repeated Registrations Inclusion

Conversely, a glimmer of hope emerges for those who have diligently attempted to register but faced exclusion. Through a dynamic survey scheduled for the early months of 2024, individuals who have been overlooked in previous registrations will have the opportunity to join the program. This dynamic survey aims to refine the participant pool, ensuring that only eligible candidates remain, and disqualifying those who no longer meet the criteria. A warning has been issued through SMS notifications (8171) urging individuals to complete their dynamic survey before December 31 to avoid disqualification.

Resumption of Benazir Taleemi Wazifa Child Benefits

Timely Payments for Child Benefits

The second beacon of good news pertains to the concerns of parents awaiting their children’s Benazir Taleemi Wazifa payments. Starting from the first day of January 2024, suspended installments of Benazir Taleemi Wazifa child benefits will resume. Moreover, phased payments are set to commence as early as December 22, bringing relief to those who anxiously awaited these much-needed funds.

Anticipation for New Benazir Kafalat Program in Three Provinces

Looming Announcement for Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Punjab

While the first two pieces of good news focus on program modifications, the third revelation hints at an upcoming program for Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Punjab provinces. Last week, the government overlooked the implementation of a free flour program or an Ehsaas Rashan Riayat in these regions. Social media speculations suggest that before January 15, the government will unveil a new Benazir Kafalat program, reminiscent of the previous year’s initiative providing three free bags of flour to each individual.


January 2024 stands as a month of positive changes for the beneficiaries of the Benazir Income Support Program and Benazir Taleemi Wazifa. The alterations in eligibility criteria, the resumption of child benefits, and the anticipated new program for three provinces signify the government’s commitment to refining and expanding social welfare initiatives, ultimately uplifting the lives of the citizens of Pakistan. Stay informed and ensure you complete your dynamic survey before the deadline to continue benefiting from these crucial programs.
