Ehsaas Emergency Cash Program


“The Government envisions Pakistan to be a ‘welfare state’ based on the principles of Islamic ideology similar to those put in place by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in Madina. Our commitment is to form a welfare state where rule of law, meritocracy, transparency, and accountability in governance are guaranteed, where equal opportunity exists for all and where social welfare is provided to all those who need it.”

Imran Khan Prime Minister of Pakistan

“حکومت پاکستان کو اسلامی فکریہ اصولوں پر مبنی ایک” فلاحی ریاست “بنائے جانے کا تصور کرتی ہے جو مدینہ منورہ میں پیغمبر اسلام (ص) کے ذریعہ رکھی گئی تھی۔ ہمارا عہد ایک فلاحی ریاست کی تشکیل کا ہے جہاں قانون کی حکمرانی ، قابلیت ، شفافیت ، اور حکمرانی میں احتساب کی ضمانت ہو ، جہاں سب کے لئے مساوی مواقع موجود ہوں اور جہاں معاشرتی فلاح و بہبود ان تمام افراد کو فراہم کی جائے جو اس کی ضرورت ہے۔

Ehsaas Program was officially launched on March 27, 2019, but it was created when our leader had taken charge as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Our Prime Minister dreams that he wants to make our country similar to Rayasat-e-Madina as he told us in his very first address with the Nation after electing as PM. Ehsaas is the first step of the Prime Minister to turn his dream into reality. The Poverty Alleviation and Social Safety Division (PASSD), now popularly known as the ‘Ehsaas Ministry’ was established in April 2019. All the organizations responsible for executing Ehsaas which were earlier reporting to different ministries are now committed to the ‘Ehsaas Ministry’. A significant budget has been set aside in the Federal Budget 2019/20 to widen safety nets. The main three objectives of Ehsaas are;

احساس پروگرام کو باضابطہ طور پر 27 مارچ ، 2019 کو شروع کیا گیا تھا ، لیکن یہ اس وقت تشکیل دیا گیا جب ہمارے قائد نے وزیر اعظم پاکستان کی حیثیت سے چارج لیا تھا۔ ہمارے وزیر اعظم کا خواب ہے کہ وہ ہمارے ملک کو ریاست مدینہ کی طرح بنانا چاہتے ہیں جیسا کہ انہوں نے بطور وزیر اعظم منتخب ہونے کے بعد قوم سے اپنے پہلے خطاب میں ہمیں بتایا تھا۔ احساس وزیر اعظم کا پہلا قدم ہے جس نے اپنے خواب کو حقیقت میں تبدیل کیا۔ غربت کے خاتمے اور سوشل سیفٹی ڈویژن (PASSD) ، جو اب مشہور ہے جسے “وزارت احساس” کے نام سے جانا جاتا ہے ، اپریل 2019 میں قائم کیا گیا تھا۔ احساس کوچلانے کے لئے ذمہ دار تمام تنظیمیں جو پہلے مختلف وزارتوں کو رپورٹنگ کرتی تھیں اب وہ “احساس وزارت” کے پابند ہیں۔ حفاظتی جالوں کو وسیع کرنے کے لئے وفاقی بجٹ 2019/20 میں ایک اہم بجٹ مختص کیا گیا ہے۔ احساس کے اہم تین مقاصد ہیں۔


  • Reduce inequality
  • Invest in people
  • Lift lagging districts

احساس کے اہم مقاصد

عدم مساوات کو کم کریں
لوگوں میں سرمایہ کاری کریں
 پسماندہ اضلاع 

The program is for the poor, extreme deprived, orphans, widows, the homeless, the disabled, those who risk medical hardship, for the unemployed, for poor farmers, for a manual worker, for the sick and malnourished; for students from low-income families and poor women and old citizens. This plan is also about lifting lagging areas where poverty is higher.

یہ پروگرام غریبوں ، انتہائی محروم ، یتیموں ، بیواؤں ، بے گھروں ، معذوروں ، بے روزگاروں ، غریب کسانوں ، دستی ملازم ، بیمار اور بدحالی کا شکار افراد کے لئے ، طبی مشکلات کا خطرہ مولنے والوں کے لئے ہے۔ کم آمدنی والے گھرانوں کے طلباء اور غریب خواتین اور بوڑھے شہریوں کے لئے۔ یہ منصوبہ پسماندگی والے علاقوں کو ختم کرنے کے بارے میں بھی ہے جہاں غربت زیادہ ہے


Ehsaas is about the formation of a ‘welfare state’. The concept of the welfare state can be visualized by

  • Make a balanced society without differences of an elite, upper, middle, and lower class, everyone will be on the same level.
  • Maximum use of technology for the betterment of society, using all the positive 21 st -century tools for the safety of the people of a welfare society.

  • Human capital development is the key to success for any welfare society in the form of poverty reduction, economic growth, and overcoming economic barriers to opening a health and post-secondary educational opportunities.

احساس ایک ’فلاحی ریاست‘ کی تشکیل کے بارے میں ہیں۔ فلاحی ریاست کا تصور اس کے ذریعے تصور کیا جاسکتا ہے

اشرافیہ ، بالائی ، درمیانے اور نچلے طبقے کے اختلافات کے بغیر متوازن معاشرہ بنائیں ، ہر شخص اسی سطح پر ہوگا۔

 معاشرے کی بہتری کے لئے ٹکنالوجی کا زیادہ سے زیادہ استعمال ، فلاحی معاشرے کے لوگوں کی حفاظت کے لئے 21 مثبت سنٹرلٹری والے تمام ٹولز کا استعمال۔

 فلاحی معاشرے کے ہر شعبے میں ڈیجیٹل خدمات کو فروغ دینا۔

 زندگی کے ہر شعبے میں خواتین کی مدد کریں ، انہیں معاشی طور پر بااختیار بنائیں۔

 انسانی سرمائے کی ترقی کسی بھی فلاحی معاشرے کے لئے غربت میں کمی ، معاشی نمو اور صحت اور ثانوی بعد کے تعلیمی مواقع کے افتتاحی معاشی رکاوٹوں پر قابو پانے کی صورت میں کامیابی کی کلید ہے۔


There must be some approaches to attain some specific objectives and some principles which are supposed to be fulfilled to achieve the goals.

  • There must be a multi-sectoral collaboration for solutions.
  • Ensuring joint federal-provincial leadership.
  • Mainstreaming the role of the private sector which has been the power to control institutions in one hand, which will strengthen them.
  • To create jobs and enhance the living standard of a common man.
  • Foundation of the Ehsaas program is based on transparency, good governance, and focusing on strengthening institutions.

The need for Ehsaas is life-threatening, as poverty is both the root cause as well as a culprit of multi-faceted problems in Pakistan. These have been intensified by universal inequality both within and across ecological regions. Such deficiencies curb individuals from contributing to economic activity and refining their well- being, hence keeping them locked in the poverty trap.

Based on the Planning Commission, estimated poverty in Pakistan has declined from 57.9% in 1998 to 24.3% in 2015, but it remains unacceptably high. A much higher section of the population faces multiple deprivations. The existence of multidimensional poverty is 38.4%7 (including education, health, and living standards).

Ehsaas program has been working on 134 Ehsaas Policies & Programs. Some of the major programs are as under:


Since the COVID-19 plague has now been started as a pandemic, Ehsaas has come up with defensive measures for Kafaalat beneficiaries to make sure their safety while trying to remain biometrically enabled Kafaalat payments in the field. The current situation wherein the Corona epidemic has possibly affected most of the cities of Pakistan, Kafaalat registration centers organized by NADRA across 15 districts of Pakistan have been supposed to hang up the self-registration drive from March 16, 2020.Same as in this crucial time of COVID -19 a few more projects have been started under the umbrella of EHSAAS PROGRAM.

EHSAAS RASHAN PORTAL / Corona Emergency Rashan Package

This initiative is launched by the federal government Ration (Rashan) to the needy people. The Ehsaas Rashan Portal is a donor-beneficiary linking system for Rashan dissemination. It has been set up to enable the private sector and civil society organizations to reach the most helpless deserving people and provide them food Rashan packs or cash equivalent to the cost of Rashan in this crucial wave of COVID-19.

Through the portal, the role of government will be to assist, networking of donors and beneficiaries (e.g., on a geographic basis) and deliver data of suitable receivers to donors. Ehsaas Data is providing the particulars of the needy to verify his status in the country, likewise, donors will be evaluated against a detailed eligibility criterion to confirm only reliable, tax paid, and registered organizations can become partners of the program.

The COVID-19 pandemic has raised destruction in the country affecting a large number of people. The poor and daily wagers have been affected by the coronavirus lockdown. The Government of Sindh will divide Rashan among the poor and deserving people at their doorstep under this Corona Emergency Rashan Package. A sum of Rs.20 million is allotted for every district of Sindh.

Like the Federal Government, the government of Punjab has also announced to pay aid to the lower class of the country by starting Insaf Imdad Package for daily wagers and laborers. After the Punjab Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, the chief minister of Punjab, Usman Buzdar, gave the idea of Insaf Imdad Package under which Rs. 12,000 each month would be assumed to daily wage workers and labors by the government of Punjab. For the period of the lockdown, this relief package would be provided to more than 2.5 million lower citizens.

وفاقی حکومت کی طرح حکومت پنجاب نے بھی روزانہ مزدوروں اور مزدوروں کے لئے انصاف امداد پیکیج شروع کرکے ملک کے نچلے طبقے کو امداد دینے کا اعلان کیا ہے۔ منگل کو پنجاب کابینہ کے اجلاس کے بعد ، وزیر اعلی پنجاب ، عثمان بزدار نے انصاف امداد پیکیج کے بارے میں آئیڈیا دیا ، جس کے تحت 500 روپے۔ حکومت پنجاب کی طرف سے ہر ماہ 12،000 مزدوروں کو دی جائے گی۔ لاک ڈاؤن کی مدت کے لئے ، یہ امدادی پیکیج ڈھائی لاکھ سے زیادہ نچلے شہریوں کو فراہم کیا جائے گا۔

Earlier, Rs. 4000 was given to people of Punjab which was changed to Rs. 12000 by the Prime Minister on the request of the Chief Minister of Punjab.


Dissemination of relief funds under the Ehsaas Programme to families affected by the coronavirus lockdown had been started from April 2020. According to Dr. Sania Nishtar, who is in charge of the program, 12 million families will get Rs12, 000 each. A budget of Rs144 billion was sanctioned for the plan. The families will be given Rs12,000 cash after biometric verification through 18,065 sale points or retail shops, Habib Bank Limited, and Bank Al-Falah across the country.

کوراس وائرس لاک ڈاؤن سے متاثرہ خاندانوں کو احساس پروگرام کے تحت امدادی فنڈز کی فراہمی اپریل 2020 سے شروع کی گئی تھی۔ اس پروگرام کی انچارج ڈاکٹر ثانیہ نشتر کے مطابق ، 12 ملین خاندانوں کو ہر ایک کو بارہ ہزار روپے ملیں گے۔ منصوبے کے لئے 144 ارب روپے کے بجٹ کی منظوری دی گئی۔ پورے خاندان میں 18،065 سیل پوائنٹس یا ریٹیل شاپس ، حبیب بینک لمیٹڈ ، اور بینک الفلاح کے ذریعہ بائیو میٹرک تصدیق کے بعد ان خاندانوں کو 12،000 روپے نقد دیئے جائیں گے۔
