The Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) Kafalat Program 2023, a component of the Income Support Program, now makes the transgender population eligible for a Rs. 7,000 quarterly stipend (BISP).
The minister also stated that 50,000 transgender people had registered with an organization, but that in order to get a stipend under the Benazir Kafalat Program 2023, which is funded by the BISP, one had to register with the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA).

The Benazir Kafalat initiative, which is run under the Benazir Income Support Program (BISP), has begun to register the transgender population nationwide.
In light of the social and economic struggles the transgender community faces, it has been decided for the first time in history to include the transgender community in the Benazir Kafalat programme.
53,800 people identify as transgender, according to the National Socio-Economic Register (NSER) survey conducted by BISP.
Transgenders in Benazir Kafalat Program Registration process
The Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) and the National Database Registration Authority (NADRA) were planning to introduce a new survey called “Dynamic Survey” on Friday in order to register beneficiaries across the nation. This announcement was made by Minister of State for Poverty Alleviation Faisal Karim Kundi. At the Tehsil and district levels, 647 dynamic registry offices would be established.
According to him, the survey will begin on January 15 and will continue throughout the month in order to meet the requirements of the underprivileged and deserving communities.
These opinions were voiced by Kundi during a casual media discussion held at the BISP headquarters. According to Kundi, who described the specifics of this unusual poll, it won’t be a regular door-to-door exercise.
Transgenders with NADRA CNIC Eligible for BISP
“I am grateful to the BISP that they thought of us and included us in the Benazir Kafalat programme,” another transgender person called Saba stated. Nobody has ever given us a thought. I appreciate BISP.”
The transgender population is forced to live a horrible life, below the poverty line, as a result of society’s inappropriate behaviour. To give this community the opportunity to live honourably, coordinated efforts are required at all levels.
The purpose of the BISP is to give about nine million families a stipend of Rs. 7000 every three months in order to help those who are struggling financially.
