Ehsaas comes up with supplementary payment solution to serve beneficiaries with biometric issues

June 4, 2020 – Islamabad: Ehsaas has introduced a supplementary payment solution to facilitate beneficiaries of Ehsaas Emergency Cash who are eligible but were facing problems in withdrawing money owing to defying biometric identification. The supplementary solution has done away with the biometric verification of fingerprints from NADARA offices. Now, beneficiaries with this issue will be paid exclusively in the designated bank branches of partner banks without biometric verification. Two banks are partnering with Ehsaas for emergency cash transfers- Habib Bank Limited is serving in Punjab, Sindh and Balochistan and Bank Alfalah across KP, GB and AJK. Dr. Sania Nishtar, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Social Protection and Poverty Alleviation took to the twitter (@SaniaNishtar) and released an instructional video on the newly introduced Ehsaas solution to biometric issues.
