The Ehsaas Punjab Rashan Program emerged as a crucial support initiative for families with medium and low incomes. Imran Khan, the Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), launched this program in November 2021 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Under this program, eligible families are provided with a monthly cash assistance of Rs 2,000 through an online registration and survey conducted on the Ehsaas Rashan government portal.
Additionally, the second phase of the Ehsaas Rashan program, managed by the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) through the helpline 8171, will allocate Rs 1,000 to individuals who are already benefiting from the BISP’s 12,000 program. To confirm eligibility and access the funds, individuals can verify their details by checking the Ehsaas Kafalat CNIC online registration system.

The Ehsaas programs offer varying amounts and proportions of rations based on eligibility criteria. The Benazir Income Support Program specifically targets individuals who fall into the category of extreme poverty. For these individuals, the program provides full rations. On the other hand, those who do not meet the criteria for extreme poverty will receive rations at a reduced rate, which is twenty percent of the total ration value. The provided rations include essential items such as pulses, sugar, flour, and more.
