The Ehsaas 8171 SMS service to register deserving families for Ehsaas Rashan Riayat programme is closing today at 12 midnight.
“Jan 26, 2022 is the last date for low income families to register themselves under the Rashan Riayat programme of Ehsaas. All arrangements are in final stages to roll out the programme in partnership with National Bank of Pakistan. Also, family eligibility of applicants is currently being determined and we will start sending the eligibility messages very soon, said Senator Dr. Sania Nishtar, SAPM while announcing the closure of Ehsaas Rashan registration of families.
Further, she added, “The registration of Karyana stores is not closing with 8171; and it will continue through the web-portal: ehsaasrahsan.pass.gov.pk.”
Before the 8171 closes at 12 midnight, families earning below Rs. 50,000 monthly can sign up by sending their CNIC. Only one member of an applicant family whose mobile number is issued on his own Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC) can register his family on 8171.
In total, 20 million deserving families will be identified through the Ehsaas survey. Overall, 130 million people will benefit from the programme countrywide that equates to 53% of the population.
Provincial Governments of Punjab, KP, Gilgit Baltistan and AJK are participating in the Ehsaas Rashan Riayat programme.
