Your Guide on How to Apply for Ehsaas Emergency Cash Program

Within a month and a half after announcing the Ehsaas Emergency Cash Program, the federal government has successfully distributed emergency cash among millions of families.

Prime Minister Imran Khan launched an SMS service in early April that connected the deserving families to the government’s database for Ehsaas Emergency Cash.

Under this program, the federal government provided Rs. 12,000 to every family facing financial crunch due to the ongoing coronavirus lockdown. As per the Chairperson Ehsaas Program, Dr. Sania Nishtar, as many as 10 million families across the country will benefit from this offer.

Screening Process

In a TV interview earlier, Dr. Sania said that they have a comprehensive system in place to detect the applications from affluent people.

With the help of NADRA, we have developed two layers of people in our National Socio-Economic Registry (NSER) database. In the first layer, the overall filtering based on various parameters, such as, based on their occupation, belongings, and bank balance, will identify the affluence of people.
