poorest women across the country

In 70 districts:

over the course of the year

NADRA Desk Registration Centers assisted by sms and Kafaalat web-service.

• Who is eligible?
o Only the destitute are eligible under Kafaalat
o Government servants and their spouses, taxpayers, car owners, people with
history of multiple foreign travels are not eligible under Kafaalat. Data analytics
will be used to exclude individuals on these parameters
• How will the payment be made?
o Payment will be made through the new biometric Ehsaas Digital Payment
System which will ensure transparency in payments.
o Under this, women will draw money from Point of Sales (PoS) agents, dedicated
branches and Biometric enabled ATMs of Habib Bank and Alfalah Bank.
o Biometrically enabled ATMs have been opened for the first time, which means
that women will not be hostage to Point of Sales agents and touts who used to
deduct money from them, fraudulently
o Designated bank branches have been opened for these poor women for the first
time so that they can draw money with dignity
o Each woman will have a bank account linked to her mobile phone to enable her
to access economic opportunities.
