BISP to start poverty resurvey in Naseerabad, Sukkar soon.

ISLAMABAD -- Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) poverty resurvey desk approach would be started in Naseerabad and Sukkur in its pilot phase.

The pilot phase was started from Harripur in June followed by Bahawalpur on August 31.

Officials of BISP told Media that under the resurvey 16 districts across the country would be covered.

The desk approach would be applied in four districts while the remaining 12 would be covered through door to door approach.

The 12 door to door resurvey districts included Jacobabad, Thatha, Mohmand Agency, Gilgit, Muzaffarabad, Layyah, Chakwal, Faisalabad, Kech, Qila Saifullah, Lakki Marwat and Charsadda.

National roll out of resurvey will be followed by the pilot phase.

They informed that to overcome the inclusion and exclusion errors, BISP has adopted CAPI (Computer Assisted Personal Interviews) instead of (Paper Assisted Personal Interviews) PAPI technique this time.

Poverty scorecard has been revised and two approaches of resurvey i.e. desk approach and door to door approach have been adopted so that no deserving family is missed out, they informed.

For verification of the authenticity of the survey done by the targeting firms, operation review firms are being procured through a competitive and transparent process.

They also informed that people could contact BISP in case of any complaint at its hotline No. 0800-26477.
