She said BISP surveys would be conducted more strictly where we will ensure the true deserving person with his/her complete family history.

“This is the first time that any government in Pakistan has used data analytic for an integrity drive,” she added.

This self-registration drive will then be counter-verified keeping in view the integrity and transparency of the program, she added.

She further said that the government is determined to ensure highest level of transparency and accuracy in coming BISP surveys because on the basis of the data collected through these surveys a long-term future plan to eliminate poverty will be chalked out and implemented.
