Budget Increase

BISP provides an extremely important social safety to the poorest segments of the society and its carefully designed schemes add value to the overall mission of empowering women. In the last 5 years, the government placed special emphasis on the expansion of BISP and improvement of its delivery mechanism. Due to its importance for the current government, the budgetary allocation has been increased in five years from Rs. 102 billion in FY 2015-16 to Rs. 180 billion in FY 2019-20. At the same time, the quarterly stipend for Unconditional Cash Transfers beneficiaries has also been increased from Rs.4,700/quarter in FY 2015-16 to Rs.5,000/quarter in FY 2019-20
