Sindh govt intends to develop cash assistance transfer system

March 30, 2020

KARACHI:Sindh Government intends to launch a Mobile Registration System for disbursement of cash to the needy people through a “Jazz Cash Transfer” like mechanism during the prevailing COVID-19 situation.

Sindh Government has requested to Federal Government, the plan is to register all needy people who intend to avail this facility and then get it verified by the NADRA authority that only one person from a family gets the facility as there is likelihood that whole family may register separately.

In order to further ensure transparency and efficiency, the Government of Sindh would like to have access to the data of tax payers maintained by Federal Board of Revenue so that the applicants are filtered for financial assistance. Moreover, data from FIA related to these applicants who travelled abroad (except the pilgrims travelling to Saudi Arabia for Umrah and Hajj since even some poor people also go for pilgrimage).

Moreover, the provincial government seeks from State Bank of Pakistan access to check applicants’ accounts having certain balance limit say less than ten thousand rupees or so in order to facilitate the Government of Sindh for identification and registration of needy people in Sindh.
