Following thorough discussion and careful consideration, the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) has directed the Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) to scrutinize the status of 8,000 registered daily wage laborers working at the Chaman border.
The aim is to determine if these individuals are already part of the BISP system and, if eligible, extend support to them.
The allocated budget for this initiative will be utilized in coordination with the Finance Department, Government of Balochistan, with later reimbursement for the expenditure incurred in providing six months of assistance to the daily wage workers.
