Officials from Pakistan’s Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) say the organisation is expected to complete a pilot phase of biometrics-backed population surveying by April.

The objective of updating its National Socio Economic Registry with biometrics will cost around Rs 1 billion rupees ($9.5 million).

Currently, 83.9 percent of the beneficiaries are drawing their stipends through debit cards, 0.001 percent through mobile banking, and only 13 percent through biometric mechanism and three percent are receiving funds through Pakistan Post.
The official said all the beneficiaries would be required to draw their stipends only through the biometric mechanism after completion of the countrywide re-survey.
The updated data would play a pivotal role in planning and designing development programmes on financial assistance, vocational trainings, microfinance, education and health," a senior official of the BISP told Business Recorder on Thursday.
