Eligibility of Benazir kafaalat programEhsaas kafalat program


Benazir Kafaalat Program eligibility process for beneficiaries relies on a precise method known as the Proxy Means Test (PMT), facilitated through the National Socio Economic Registry (NSER) survey. This eligibility method employs a scientific approach to gauge a household’s welfare status, assigning a numerical value on a scale from 0 to 100 within the PMT framework. The eligibility threshold for the PMT score is established by the BISP Board, taking into account the available financial resources.

The focal point of this eligibility process is the PMT cut-off score, which acts as the decisive criterion for inclusion in the program. Families falling within the predefined PMT cut-off score are granted financial aid through the Benazir Kafaalat Program. In the interest of equitable allocation of resources, the BISP Board evaluates the fiscal scope and approves a specific PMT cut-off score.

In a significant development, the BISP Board’s 52nd meeting, convened on September 23, 2021, endorsed the prevailing PMT cut-off score of 32. This score represents the threshold at which families become eligible for assistance through the program. Notably, families with a member who is differently abled are afforded a higher PMT cut-off score of 37 to meet their unique needs and challenges.

In essence, the Benazir Kafaalat Program methodology for identifying beneficiaries is underpinned by a scientific and data-driven approach. By leveraging the Proxy Means Test within the National Socio Economic Registry survey, the program ensures that assistance is channeled to households most in need, while the PMT cut-off score acts as a calibrated measure to align eligibility with available resources. The differential PMT cut-off score for families with differently abled members underscores the program’s commitment to inclusivity and tailored support.


Individuals identifying as transgender are obligated to acquire CNICs (Computerized National Identity Cards) through NADRA (National Database and Registration Authority) with their gender explicitly marked as transgender. A compulsory survey is conducted at Benazir Registration Centers, which are set up in each BISP (Benazir Income Support Program) Tehsil Office. However, the restrictions pertaining to PMT (Poverty Means Test) cut-offs have been eased. This means that all transgender individuals who successfully undergo the survey are qualified to apply for inclusion in the program.

Once NADRA validates and verifies the provided data, individuals who identify as transgender are confirmed as beneficiaries. As a result, they become eligible to receive cash assistance facilitated through BISP’s affiliated banks.
