The Benazir Income Support Programme was founded in 2008 by Yousaf Raza Gillani who accepted the proposal of President Asif Ali Zardari. The program’s name is recognition to previous Prime Minister and dowager of President Zardari, Benazir Bhutto, who was killed in 2007.
As in 2005, the purchasing capability of several Pakistani relations has been consumed by flying reflation and the rising expense of food and fuel. BISP issued upon this backdrop as a resource to direct losses in getting pressure. Forward including the commercial growth purposes of the plan, BISP also explores to approve ladies by donating money assignments immediately to female branches of families.
BISP is currently the most comprehensive aide program in Pakistan and the government’s third-largest budgetary allocation. Benazir Income Support Programme spending estimates for 0.3% of Pakistan’s GDP.

For the 2009–2010 commercial year, the performance was increased to reach 5 million low-income households. At the application’s start in 2008, the Pakistani state allotted Rs 33 billion, or $400 million, for BISP; the allocation increased to Rs 65 billion, or $885 million in the coming year.
