KARACHI: Minister of State and Chairperson BISP MNA Marvi Memon held an interactive meeting with survey teams of AASA Consulting in Thatta yesterday, where she was briefed on the progress of the ongoing survey of BISP for National Socio Economic Registry (NSER) update. AASA Consulting is BISP’s partner firm that is conducting survey in pilot districts of Thatta-Sajawal, Jacobabbad, Sukkar, Kech, Naseerabad and Killa Saifullah. MNA Ayaz Shah Shirazi, Riaz Shah Shirazi and DG BISP Sindh Naeem Anwar were also present. Speaking on the occasion, Chairperson BISP said that the survey being conducted for NSER update was top-notch and exemplary as the data was being collected through technology enabled tablets. The performance and coverage quality is ensured through a Visual Monitoring Coverage Assurance (VMCA) system developed by BISP MIS (Management Information System) system that monitors universal coverage and performance of the survey teams. By completing this high-tech survey on apolitical basis, the present government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, will not only render valuable service for the poorest of the country but will provide a model to the world to follow. Chairperson expressed contentment over the completion of the 52% of the work in Thatta and Sajawal and directed the survey teams to ensure 100% coverage of the district. She added that the data collected through this survey is vital for the development planning, so no compromise will be made on quality of data. Data collection is a sacred responsibility bestowed on enumerators and supervisors and they should fulfil it with full commitment.—PPI
