Women in Fazilpur tehsil of Rajanpur are standing in long lines in fierce heat to get their monthly stipend from Benazir Income Support Program (BISP). It is also being alleged that the persons authorized to give the hand-outs are forcing women to pay 500 rupees as arbitrary tax on each hand-out.

It should be noted here that as per the official BISP website, the amount given to each registered BISP beneficiary is 1500 rupees, which is meant to “cushion the negative effects of slow economic growth, the food crisis and inflation on the poor, particularly women.”
