BISP resolves payment issue: MoU signed with more banks


If you are a beneficiary of Benazir Kafalat Program and facing payment related issues, then there is great news for you. Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with several banks to streamline the payment process. The aim of this initiative is to ensure that eligible persons receive their money without facing unnecessary hassles. In this article, we will discuss in detail the details of the MOU and how it addresses the payment problems faced by BISP recipients.

HBL Bank’s role in BISP

Understanding the service’s policy and agreement with the BISP program is important, especially for those receiving payment for electricity. HBL Bank has been a key player in facilitating these payments. However, to increase reach and efficiency, BISP has expanded its collaboration with several banks.

BISP’s expanded partnership with banks

BISP is set to take services from a total of seven banks operating in Pakistan. These banks have agreed to distribute the BISP amount to all registered persons through their ATMs. It aims to provide a seamless experience to beneficiaries, allowing them to easily access their funds.

Streamlining the Benazir Kafalat Payment Process

The newly signed MOU ensures that beneficiaries can access their Benazir Income Support Program funds with a simple thumb impression verification at ATMs of partner banks. The initiative aims to eliminate the challenges faced by individuals standing in long queues to receive their payments. The thumbprint verification process not only enhances security but also makes the entire transaction process more efficient.

Benefits of extended partnership

The decision to involve multiple banks in the disbursement process is driven by the government’s commitment to effectively serve the poor and deserving individuals. By diversifying the channels through which beneficiaries can access their funds, the government aims to reduce the barriers faced by those in need.

One of the primary issues that the government wants to address is long queues at payment centres. Many eligible individuals suffer because of the time-consuming process of collecting their funds. Additionally, various challenges have been identified, prompting the government to take decisive action. Expanding BISP’s collaboration with multiple banks is a strategic step to mitigate these issues.

The Government intends to continue working towards further expanding the network of banks associated with the BISP programme. This commitment ensures that a broad spectrum of financial institutions will be engaged in distributing funds, providing greater choice and access to beneficiaries.


Finally, the recent MOU signed between BISP and several banks is an important step in resolving the payment issues faced by the beneficiaries. This initiative not only streamlines the payment process but also addresses common challenges like long queues and accessibility. As more banks join the program, the government aims to create a robust and efficient system that ensures timely distribution of funds to eligible individuals. This collaborative effort reflects the Government of Pakistan’s commitment to prioritizing the welfare of its citizens through the Benazir Income Support Programme.
