NSER Token in Ehsaas Bisp Program | NSER Survey Ehsaas latest update

NSER Token in Ehsaas Bisp Program

The integration of the integrated database is essential to facilitate the adoption of the EhsaasOneWindow targeting policy. It also makes the targeting more predictable, as it is based on the data collected through an Ehsaas Survey. The Ehsaas ecosystem will use PMT for this purpose. However, the benefits of this program will be clearer when it comes to the implementation of the NSER Token.

NSER Tokens

The BISP Board has approved the use of NSER Tokens in the Ehsaas Bisp Program. The program was initially launched in July 2015 and has since been expanded to other states and districts. The goal is to enroll 70 million beneficiaries through the Emotion Sponsorship Program. To date, approximately 5 lakh BISP beneficiaries have enrolled in the Emotion Sponsorship Program and ten lakh have participated in the program in 70 districts. A dedicated center has been established to carry out the NSER survey in 17 districts and provide support to residents in these areas.

The Ehsaas Kafalat registration program is an extension of the Benazir Income Support Program. The new program provides biometric-activated ATMs to protect beneficiaries from fraudulent withdrawals. This program has also expanded its access to economic opportunities for women in Pakistan. To register, a deserving member of the family must visit an Ehsaas Registration Center and present a national ID card. The Ehsaas Kafalat program also requires a name verification. This program is part of the Benazir Income Support Program and replaces the former Benazir Income Support Program. The Ehsaas Kafalat registration program increases the amount to 5500 rupees.

Multi-sectoral nature of BISP

In Pakistan, multisectoral action has not been as successful as it could be. There are four major challenges that have to be overcome in order to achieve multisectoral development. These include the timely management of policy windows and an action menu with clearly defined priorities and timeframes. Further, investments in horizontally-placed human resources and integrated tracking systems are needed for progress. These challenges, as well as the lack of transparency and accountability, should be overcome.

Capture of household data

The BISP and Ehsaas programs have been designed in such a way that they capture household data using a mobile tablet application. These applications use automatic data sampling to collect data from households and communicate with supervisors via bluetooth. The collected data is then transmitted to a central NSER database via a secure VPN. The mobile tablet applications are used by 1,800 surveyors in 12 districts and have so far completed 2.2 million household surveys.

While the NSER I was paper-based, the NSER II is digital and covers almost all households in Pakistan. This new survey includes additional socio-economic indicators. The NSER II is the first digital census type household survey, and it aims to minimize inclusion-exclusion errors and target the most deserving segment of the population. Further, it will be the first time that the government of Pakistan has used this method in a household survey.

Disbursement of funds at specially designated campsites

The BISP has decided to disburse funds to eligible Ehsaas Kafaalat beneficiaries at specially designated campsites. It will be the first time that BISP has permitted disbursement of funds at such campsites. The BISP will provide exceptions for BISP officers, HBL bank employees, BVS bank retailers, and NADRA staff to conduct disbursement of funds in the designated campsites.

The Ehsaas Registration Centers can assist the applicants in filling out the application form. All eligible families should bring their child’s B-Form, CNIC, and school admission receipt with them. To apply, visit the Ehsaas 8171 web portal and set up an appointment. After you’ve made an appointment, visit the registration center and present your documentation.

Monitoring of BISP’s progress

To improve the quality of the BISP, a new tool has been developed called the CAPI. It enables the collection and management of survey data from the field and reduces the time it takes to process data. Moreover, it reduces errors and costs. To develop the tool, the BISP has selected 15 districts for the pilot phase. These districts have undergone a combination of door-to-door survey and self-registration desk surveys. They are stratified to reflect the heterogeneity of the country. Innovative Development Solutions has been contracted to monitor the progress of the project across all clusters.
