Islamabad: Pakistan has launched a nationwide survey to identify the poor for government aid, an official said Thursday.

Farzana Raja, the chairperson of Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP), said the government will utilize all resources to help improve the lives of the common man.

BISP aims to empower the underprivileged sections of the society, including women, she said in an interview with Pakistan TV.

Raja said the survey will cover all the provinces as well as the Gilgit-Baltistan region, the Pakistan-administered Kashmir and the tribal areas.

BISP is the country's largest social programme designed to provide financial assistance, education and vocational training to the underprivileged, the official APP news agency reported.
