ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari advised the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) to distribute cash grants among the poor through Benazir Smart Cards (BSC) instead of post offices to avoid delays in the delivery mechanism.

He was speaking at a briefing on BISP at the Presidency on Friday. Presidential Spokesperson Farhatullah Babar said that the president also asked NADRA to significantly reduce the charges of BSC so that it was easily affordable.
