Current Payment Mechanism
The payments to the BISP beneficiaries are being made through the Pakistan Post.
The list of beneficiaries is sent to the Pakistan Post in an electronic form along with a cheque for the total amount to be paid to the beneficiaries.
Pakistan Post prints money orders through a digitized system and Money Orders are paid to the beneficiaries at their doorstep.
At the time of payment delivery, the beneficiary woman has to establish her identity and show her CNIC.
Through this mechanism no one handles the money except the Postman.
As a measure of transparency and social accountability of the Programme, the payment details and status of delivery of each beneficiary has been displayed at the BISP website.
New Payment Mechanism
In order to further improve the payment mechanism, technology based solutions are being explored by BISP.
Such new mechanisms will enable the BISP to execute the payments in a shorter span of time and real time reconciliation of payments. Systems are also being designed to address the payment complaints in a more efficient way.
Payment through the Smart Card is being initiated in four districts on a Pilot basis. The cards will be issued by NADRA and the payments will be arranged by a Bank through a network of franchisees and a core banking application.
