JHANG: The district administration on Sunday assigned duties of 45 female schoolteachers to maintain social distance among the deserving women visiting at the centres set up under the Prime Minister’s Ehsaas Kifalat Programme here.

The step was taken after receiving complaints from the Benazir Income Support Programme management and to provide further facilities to the deserving women at the established centres.

During a meeting with Additional Deputy Commissioner General Muhammad Ashraf and Assistant Commissioner Qasim Gil, BISP Assistant Director Ahmed Murtaza and other senior officials informed the district administration officers that the distribution work of stipend money among the deserving women was in progress smoothly at Mai Heer Stadium but the Kotwali SHO was involving in the matters of distribution of stipend money among the women which was not his work. It was informed when he was resisted, the SHO allegedly not only thrashed the BISP duty staff but also registered FIRs against the senior BISP and commercial bank officials who had nothing to do with the payment complaints and were present at the centres

The BISP AD told the meeting that stipend money was provided to 4,676 deserving women next day in an honorable way at nine centres.

To it, the ADC and the AC said that to avoid further inconvenience at the centres, female schoolteachers had been deployed at the centres to maintain social distance among the women and for required assistance. They said that vigilant clerical staff would be assigned duties at the payment booths to monitor the payment process. The ADC and the AC asked the BISP and the bank officers to increase the number of payment booths to provide speedy service to the visiting women.
