A list of different programs is currently working under the umbrella of the Ehsaas program. Essentially, all these programs are working for the betterment and assistance of the vulnerable and poor part of our society.
Each time the government of Pakistan comes up with a program, it has a different registration method and a code. Therefore, it can be overwhelming for people to keep track of all of the codes.
Moreover, if you cannot distinguish between various codes, you must go for online portals of the programs because sending your data to the wrong number can be risky.
So, follow along to learn more about the code 8267 and its usage.
Is 8267 a Registration Code?
A variety of programs are functioning under the same term; Ehsaas. These include Ehsaas Kafalat Program, Ehsaas Emergency Cash during the Covid-19 Pandemic, Ehsaas Cash Assistance for Women, and Ehsaas Scholarship.
All these programs use different codes for their registration. However, the government might send you a confirmation of registration through the same code.
Rumors have been set in motion by people that the government has released a new code, 8267, for registering RS 12000, RS 6000, or RS 50,000. However, it is not true.
You cannot use this code for any Ehsaas program registration or eligibility checking. So, do not send your ID card number on this code.
It is understandable why this rumor started in the first place. The code is not a complete lie because the government is using it only for their end of the communication.
Similarly, as far as the beneficiaries are concerned, they can only receive confirmation messages through this code telling them to collect their money or if they are eligible. However, they cannot register through 8267.
Dynamic Survey BISP 2023
Now that it is established that 8267 is not a code for any of the registration and that the codes are different for different programs. You might think about how to enroll your data in the system. The solution to this problem is doing the dynamic Survey BISP 2023.
When a person is registered for Benazir Income Support Program, their information is in the system. Moreover, suppose you are declared eligible for BISP. In that case, chances are you will automatically be eligible for other programs because these social relief schemes work collaboratively and share data of deserving families with each other.
If you have not been a part of the survey before, it is highly recommended you take part in this survey. Dynamic surveys are conducted at Benazir Income Support Program offices at every tehsil level. So, you can go there and enroll yourself in it. However, before going, ensure you have the following required documents.
- Original Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC)
- Children’s Form Bey
- your home electricity and gas bills
- If you are disabled, you must have it written on your ID card.
Authentic Registration Codes
The registration and eligibility code for Ehsaas Emergency Cash, Ehsaas Program, Benazir Income Support Program, and Ehsaas Kafalat Program is 8171.
You can send your CNIC number on this code, and they will tell you about the social aid you are eligible for. Moreover, you can also register through an online portal, and they will check your eligibility based on NADRA and NSER data.
Additionally, if you want to register for the Wazir e Azam relief package, send your CNIC to 5566 for Ehsaas Utility Store Rashan. So, do a little research and learn about the real codes before sending your CNIC number.
What should I do if I receive a call or SMS from a fake number claiming to be from Ehsaas Program?
If you receive messages and call from any number other than the official Ehsaas Program code, you should immediately report them by calling +92335-1058050 or +92335-1058051 numbers. Moreover, they will contact PTA, investigate these numbers, and block them.
Is Ehsaas 8173 an authentic code?
No, it is a fake code, and there is no program under the name ‘Ehsaas 8173’; the correct code is 8171.
In a nutshell, 8267 is not a code for any of the Ehsaas social relief funds. You cannot register your CNIC number on this code. However, you can receive payment or eligibility messages from 8267 or 8367. It is a one-way communication medium for the government. Therefore, try to avoid sending any information on this number.
Additionally, scammers and hackers have found their way toward this aid, scamming people with fake Ehsaas program offers. Letting these people get their hands on your personal information is extremely risky. Therefore, report these numbers and social media accounts immediately to help yourself and others.
