Special Communications Organization (SCO), the largest telecom service provider in Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJ&K) and Gilgit-Baltistan (GB), has started cash disbursement through its financial service “S-Paisa” under Prime Minister’s Ehsaas Kafalat program. In this regard, payments in the relief package are being given at the government’s specified areas (campsites) through bio-metric verification on 73 locations in Azad Jammu & Kashmir and 87 locations in Gilgit-Baltistan.
Under this program, due to the Coronavirus lockdown, the deserving families who are receiving Rs. 2000/- monthly, now will receive an additional Rs. 1000/- for 4 months. Keep in mind that under Prime Minister’s Ehsaas Kafalat program, SCO is providing free financial assistance through S-Paisa in AJ&K and GB. Now deserving families can receive money through S-Paisa on the government’s designated campsites after getting bio-metric verification.
SCO is already distributing payments to beneficiaries in AJ&K and GB under the Benazir Income Support Program (Now Ehsaas Kafalat program). Through S-paisa financial service, SCO has enabled beneficiaries to register and get their disbursements by bringing financial services to the local corner shop and developed a cash distributing solution for the people of far-flung areas where banks and other financial institutions have no access.
By offering customers innovative digital financial solutions, SCO is aligned with its vision of empowering societies.
