The Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) has been a vital lifeline for many, providing financial assistance to those in need. However, recent delayed payments and agent fraud have caused concern among beneficiaries.
BISP December 17500 Double Payment
While the December installment of Rs 17500 has been initiated for most, some beneficiaries are yet to receive the Rs 8,500 due to technical glitches. However, assurances have been made that the second phase will rectify these issues, ensuring all rightful payments are credited.
Agent Fraud Concerns
Tragically, some beneficiaries have fallen victim to agent fraud, being deceived of additional funds and facing disruptions in regular payments. It’s imperative to caution against such malpractice and urge agents to uphold the rights of the beneficiaries.
Beneficiaries are advised to personally verify their payments through agents before concluding any transactions. Verifying the credited amount prevents fraudulent activities, securing their entitled funds.
Benazir Taleemi Wazaif
Concerns about Benazir Taleemi Wazaif have surfaced, but reassuringly, payments for accepted scholarships are set to start on the 15th of December. Beneficiaries are encouraged to coordinate with their nearest agents to ensure a smooth transfer into their accounts.
Exciting news awaits beneficiaries in Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Punjab provinces, where a new aid program resembling the Free Atta initiative is anticipated post-December 15. The proposed programs, possibly Free Ata and a Rashan Subsidy Program, aim to alleviate the burden of inflation.
The final decision regarding the aid programs is pending. However, both programs aim to assist people during these challenging times, relieving economic strains.
The BISP December payment concerns have been acknowledged, and steps are being taken to rectify the delays and prevent further exploitation of beneficiaries. As December unfolds, the hope is for smoother processes, ensuring financial stability for those in need.
