Benazir Kafalat Payment Is Going To Increase 2024

Increase in Benazir Kafalat Program Payments: What You Need to Know

Recently, social media has been abuzz with news that the amount of the Benazir Kafalat program is set to increase. This article will clarify whether this increase is indeed going to happen. Negotiations between the Government of Pakistan and the IMF have led to an agreement to boost the budget for the Benazir Income Support Program. Consequently, the program’s budget will rise from 470 billion rupees to 350 billion rupees in the next fiscal year.

This agreement has fueled rumors of an increase in the Kafalat program payments. However, it’s too early to confirm any details. We will likely have more concrete information after the government presents the 2024 fiscal year budget. For now, those wondering about an increase in financial assistance from the Benazir Income Support Program should stay tuned for further updates.

Potential Increase in Kafalat Payments

If there is an increase, how much will it be? Last year, the Kafalat program payments were raised from 8500 rupees to 10,500 rupees. Based on this precedent, it’s possible that an increase of around 2,000 rupees could be expected. However, until the new budget is officially announced, this remains speculative. The government has only agreed with the IMF to increase the program’s budget, not the individual payments to beneficiaries.

New Kafalat Program Registration

With the budget increase agreement in place, this is an excellent opportunity for eligible families to complete their registration. Once the government presents the next fiscal year’s budget, the process for including new families in the Kafalat program will commence.
