BISP to introduce biometric payment system soon

Hyderabad—The Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) is committed to facilitate its beneficiaries to the maximum extent possible. In this regard BISP is shortly introducing bio metric based payment system in Multan, Mianwali, Mirpur Khas and Sanghar for those beneficiaries who have smart cards to draw their funds said Mr Naeem Anwar , the Director General BISP Sindh in a statement here on Friday.
According to his, biometric system for withdrawing BISP grant would be introduced across the country after effective tests. Due to the reason it is expected that payments to these beneficiaries may be delayed by three weeks, he said. However, he said that BISP is ensuring that these beneficiaries will get the benefits of the system in due course.
He informed that BISP awards financial support of Rs4, 700 to 5.3 million beneficiaries on quarterly basis via Benazir Debit Card (BDC). Diverting the payment system to biometrics will eradicate the role of middleman, he said and added, many BISP beneficiaries were illiterate and unable to operate ATMs.
The Director General said that the beneficiaries would be able to draw the amount by using their CNIC along with biometrics. He said that biometric system will allow beneficiaries to draw their sums from ATMs without any hassle and we apologize in advance for this small delay please.—APP
