ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvi has appreciated the integration of all Ehsaas services and facilities under one roof, saying that for the first time in Pakistan, a single window service had been developed to serve those in need.

He visited the One-Window Ehsaas Centre on Wednesday where he took stock of the wide ranging services and met the beneficiaries.

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Poverty Alleviation and Social Protection Dr Sania Nishtar briefed him on the One Stop Shop operations of Ehsaas which integrate all benefits and services of 14 different target groups in one space.

“It is heartening to see that all Ehsaas services can be accessed at this facility in a well-coordinated manner, and this is the real demonstration of a welfare state,” President Alvi said.

He especially mentioned the integrity and transparency in Ehsaas operations.

The one-window centre offers wide ranging services including Ehsaas Kafaalat, ATM machines of partnering banks for Ehsaas cash payment, Nadra office for biometric verification, and desks for Ehsaas School Stipends, Ehsaas Nashonuma, Ehsaas Undergraduate Scholarship, Ehsaas Amdan and Ehsaas Interest Free Loan, Ehsaas Digital internet café, Ehsaas Langar, Ehsaas Tahafuz along with a desk to serve differently-abled, shuttle service to take people to Panagahs, Ehsaas Utility Store for the Ehsaas Rashan Riayat, fully equipped training room, survey registration desk, retiring room for women, information and complaint desks.
