Nov 9, 2021 – Islamabad: Dr. Sania announced the opening of Ehsaas Rashan Riayat portal to register deserving families as well as Kiryana merchants. She visited a local Kiryana store in Sitara market Islamabad along with senior officials of National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) to enroll the first Kiryana merchant on the portal. Speaking to media, she said, “The Ehsaas Socioeconomic Registry Survey which has just been completed will be used to identify deserving families for the programme. Family eligibility will be determined within four weeks, after registration on the portal. Applicant families will be sent eligibility messages from 8171; this programme is being executed by NBP.” Likewise, the Karyana enterprises registered on the portal would also be physically verified. Once they pass the authentication process, the Kiryana merchants will be able to pass the subsidy benefit on to the deserving households. It is mandatory for the Karyana merchants to have a valid bank account. Those without bank accounts will be facilitated to open their bank accounts in the nearest branches of National Bank of Pakistan. Ehsaas Rashan registration can be carried out through the online Ehsaas Rashan portal: ehsaasrashan.pass.gov.pk.
