The purpose of the Benazir Kafalat Program Check by CNIC is to provide assistance to individuals who are deserving and economically disadvantaged, as the poverty rate in Pakistan continues to rise. The increased poverty score has led to a significant decline in people’s purchasing power, largely caused by various epidemics and floods that have adversely affected businesses and weakened the economy of individuals in Pakistan.
Benazir Kafalat Program 8500
The Benazir Kafalat Program is a non-discriminatory initiative that provides unconditional aid to individuals regardless of their race, color, or political affiliation. Initially, beneficiaries were receiving a stipend of 8500 rupees, which has now been increased to 9000 rupees. The funds can be withdrawn through biometric authentication at designated outlets and banks nationwide. This program aims to support those living below the poverty line.
Benazir Kafalat Program NSER Survey
The eligibility criteria for the Benazir Kafalat program are established through the National Socio-Economic Registry (NSER) survey. Teams conducting the NSER survey visit households to gather data, which is then used to determine the allocation of assistance to eligible individuals.
Benazir Kafalat Program Eligibility Check
To determine eligibility for the NSAR program, individuals can participate in the survey conducted by the program. Checking eligibility status can be done online through the 8171 web portal by entering the National Identity Card (CNIC) number. Families surveyed will receive messages regarding their eligibility and the disbursement of funds from the Benazir Kafalat Program through the number 8171. It is important to note that messages related to Benazir Kafalat Program eligibility should only come from this specific number. If any messages come from other numbers, it is advised not to trust them or share any personal information such as CNIC number, home address, or bank account details. In such cases, it is recommended to report these messages to the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority’s complaint number. No charges are imposed for filing a complaint.
