The Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) is a social welfare program in Pakistan that provides cash assistance to low-income families. The program was initiated by Benazir Bhutto, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, in 2016. The BISP provides assistance to families with an income below the poverty line, which is estimated at around 200 per day. The program is administered by the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA). As of 2008, BISP provided assistance to over 1.5 million families. When Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in 2007, she left behind an ambitious income support program that aimed to improve the lives of millions of people in Pakistan. The Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) provides families with a minimum income, helps them access social services, and encourages entrepreneurship. Since its inception, the BISP has helped millions of families improve their lives.
