Chairperson Benazir Income Support Program Marvi Memon received live calls of listeners and BISP beneficiaries in a programme of Radio Pakistan's News and Current Affairs Channel on Friday. She responded to queries of people from around the country who raised different points and issues of BISP especially relating to eligibility criteria and disbursement of cash grant.
During the programme, Chairperson BISP said close mentoring of the programme is being carried out to guard against elements who try to exploit its benefices.
She said in this regard PTA has launched a massive camping to sensitize people about fraudulent practices. To a question, she said the ongoing re-survey of the programme would span over two years to enlist new eligible people and strike down names of those who have graduated over time.
Marvi Memon said the stipend of beneficiaries has been increased from the previous 1500 to 1566 rupees per month.
