Benazir Income Support Program

By Dr. Hassan Isfahani • Jun 12th, 2008 • Category: Politics • 139 Comments

Finance Minister Syed Naveed Qamar and his team has done a good job of formulating the upcoming Budget of Pakistan. In this budget, they are facing many disparate challenges. At one side they have to render much needed relief to the hapless populace and on the other hand they have to pull the economy out of the chasm.

Though one cannot call the just announced budget a dreamy one, but at least its a good step in the right direction, and freshly it provides some relief to the poor and needy. The new program which is termed as Benazir Income Program which is worth 24 billions dollars would provide some semblance of relief to the people. According to this program, each poor family will be provided Rs. 1000 monthly and the assessment of the poor would be done from the NADRA data. Though in these times, when the prices of everything have gone through the roof and 1000 is just nothing, but then something is better than nothing, and the budget says that this 24 billion would be made 50 billion with the passage of time.

The rise in the salaries of the government employees up to 20% is little low, and it should be at least up to 35% if not more, given the way prices have sky rocketed in the recent months. The increase in the pension is also a welcome step, and government should also announce some relief allowance for the people.

Pakistan’s economy grew by 5.8 per cent against original target of 7.2 per cent, and that opens up the ghost claims of Shaukat Aziz’s economic miracle. Now this government must not push the problems under the rug, and they have to tackle them with iron hand and iron will while taking the nation into confidence.

  3. The country of beggars and leaders of those beggars have no other option left like such cards.This way they could increase their street powers by indulging the poor and illiterate class to gather around them for a piece of bread and they would juggle them accordingly.My country name should be now Beggaristan.Some beggars are now in designers suits and some are in rags.Some speak like western sytle and some talk like desi style but characteristics are same.
    Liars, creating self pity on dead bodies and miseries,mentally and moraly handicapped,no
    self respect etc.

  4. I want to point out that there is no proper verification from NADRA, it’s just story, I belonged to a village, one month before I was with my friend in village 17/11.L CHICHAWATNI, I stayed their for one month. I know most of the people their, the politicians of this village, derived an unfair mean to acquire FUTURE VOTES FOR ELECTION, they used the BENAZIR INCOME SUPPORT PROGRAM as their part of strategy. OVERALL there is approximately 400 or above support forms, and if we look the attached villages their portion of forms is on 10% of this village, and most of them are for the whole family, and if we look at the family status, their few members are at respectable occupations, earning more than sufficient money. While the needy and poor families are only used as to show.

  19. Dear All,
    Fact is behind the truth,Keep one thing in mind every single person in governement does not have any concern with Pakistani weither it was Nawaz Sharif,Shahbaz Sharif,Benazir or Zardari. They are here to earn money and invest in other countries. They have duel nationality. they have properties and business in other countries. They are using Pakistan as a money generator for thier children.But unforunatly we kept our eyes closed willingly. we should not let them do this to us. Their children our living abroad and when they grew up they come to Pakistan to rule us and ‘we’ are the ones who let them do this. shahbaz sharif is planing to make ring roads around cities but he cant see roads of towns and villages it is because it does not generate revenue for him. see he constructed motorway which is worthless,benazir construted cricket stadium in lahore,worthless, musharaf let the chaudries smugle flour out of country, So, if you go in thier histry the are all hipocrits. Just imagine president of Pakistan is living a life of king and his ministers too but people are suffering from diesesters. they dont care because they dont belong to this nation. America,UK,Saudia supports them because they sent back the donations and money they recieve for the development of Pakistan.Our traders does not want to bring down prices because they are giving shares to government. Cant president and ministers use 800cc car rather than using luxuri vechiles. They die like angels and they live like devil. Didi any of the higher class of Pakistan ever objected against prices,behaviour of law enforcing authorties it is because they are using them for thier own business. If we sit like this we will never progress and these polititians will rouin our lives. If they are giving 1000 rupees to poor, than they are bringing out thousands from thier blood and flesh. You will see one day ,bilawal will come to rule us,hamza shahbaz will pop out his head as polititian. but all credit goes to us who let them do this to our own self. (aj ka yarzid hay zardari). if you look any department of governement you will find corruption,scandles,assults, etc etc but no one able to stop them it is because we dont have unity. and we all wish to earn easy way rather than working hard. we should not let these devil polititian live in our state.they are all criminals. they are getting revenue on share basis through many hotels,plants,mills etc etc. Open your eyes people and skrew them.we need to change our selves then we can bring reform in our society.

  20. the programe is runing fast but have no proper monitring , so many poor beneficiery are looking to register their complain .
    post offices are the houses of coruption
    have any complain mechanism ?
