April 10, 2020

ISLAMABAD: To facilitate people sending SMS to BISP Code 8171 for Ehsas Programme registration, all SMS’ will be free with no charging from 10th April, 2020.

This decision to make SMS service free of charge has been taken in view of problems faced by some mobile subscribers with no balance, who now will be able to send SMS on 8171 with zero balance.

It may be mentioned that PTA is extending full support to BISP, without any financial benefit, in its efforts to reach out people waiting for help through mobile technology.
