One significant issue has been difficulties in accessing payments via ATMs. Nevertheless, active efforts are underway to swiftly resolve these issues, making it easier for beneficiaries to receive payments without hassle.
The program’s coverage has been expanded to encompass various districts, including Sukkur, Lahore, Peshawar, Quetta, North Waziristan, DI Khan, and Sanghar. Social Protection Accounts have been established, empowering beneficiaries to select their preferred banks for receiving payments.
