8171 Check Online 2024-25 Web Portal | احساس پروگرام 8171

The ex-prime minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, launched various programs under the umbrella of the Ehsaas Program to provide relief to the most vulnerable and poor part of society during the days of COVID-19. Even when the pandemic has gone, Pakistan is facing several huge socio-economic crises among which poverty, inflation, and unemployment are the biggest ones. Considering the situation, even the new government of Pakistan decided to resume the ehsas program so people could get financial support from the government. 

If you are also one of those families who are below the poverty line and are suffering financially amidst this skyrocketing inflation, you need to register yourself right now into the ehsas program. There’s no rocket science nor do you need to travel miles or wait in long lines to get yourself registered. 

The government has launched the 8171 Check Online portal through which everyone can check his eligibility for almost all the ehsas programs. Everyone who has a stable internet connection and a supporting device can access the portal from the comfort of his home. Wondering how? Keep reading the article to know! 

8171 Check online web portal

Check eligibility via the 8171 portal

To check your eligibility online via the 8171 portal, all you need to do is follow the given steps; 

  • Click the link 8171.pass.gov.pk and the official ehsas eligibility portal will open up on your screen.
  • On the homepage, you’d find two boxes. In the first one, you need to type your 13-digit national identity card number. 
  • The second box is a sort of captcha. Right above that box, you can see an image containing a special code (which might consist of numbers or letters). Type the exact code in the second box and click the green button. 

One thing which is important to mention here is that the online system has been digitized which in turn enhances efficiency and transparency. The system usually takes two minutes to complete the search and show results about your family’s eligibility in the ehsas program. 

Check eligibility via 8171 sms service

If you don’t have access to the internet or a smartphone, there are also some alternate ways to check your eligibility. One of those methods is CNIC check via SMS in which;

  • You first need to send your 13-digit CNIC number to 8171 code via text message 
  • After a short verification process, you’ll receive different types of replies such as a declining reply stating that you are not eligible for the ehsas program. On the other hand, you may receive messages notifying you to either wait for your payment or visit your district registration center. 

In most cases, a team conducts a door-to-door survey to ensure the eligibility of applicants. During the survey, different questions are asked to you and your family members about your financial status, income source, and employment. After verifying your eligibility, the government sends the promised amount (PKR 14000) to your ehsas kafalat account which you can either withdraw from a nearby registration center or biometric ATMs. 

Another thing that you might find surprising is that on registering to one of the ehsas programs via the 8171 check online portal, you’ll automatically get registered to all the other ehsas programs. On the other hand, if you are already registered in the Benazir income support program (BISP), there’s no need to check your eligibility via the portal since the government of Pakistan has already registered BISP beneficiaries in the ehsas programs. 

Register yourself via 8171 check online portal

After checking your eligibility, the next step is to register yourself to the Ehsas program to get your payment. For registration, you’ll need the following information;

  • Your CNIC number
  • Mobile SIM number
  • NSER survey form No. 

Many of you might not be aware of the NSER survey so let us explain it to you. This survey is conducted by a team of the national socio-economic registry which aims to determine the poverty score of every household. So, if an NSER team has been to your home for the survey, then you must have the following details; 

  • NSER Survey forms no. 
  • CNIC Number
  • Mobile number
  • Number of family members
  • Name of person 
  • Family category number

The NSER form no. is not mandatory but it may increase the turnaround time which in turn makes you able to withdraw your money sooner. However, if the NSER team has not been to your location yet, you can still register yourself by typing your CNIC and mobile number. Keep in mind that your CNIC number is the most vital part of the whole ehsas web portal so make sure your CNIC is not expired. If so, visit a nearby NADRA office and renew your CNIC before applying for registration.

Besides the CNIC number, you also need to type the correct mobile number and make sure the mobile number you provide is registered on the given CNIC. If your mobile number won’t be registered on your name or CNIC, chances are your application might be rejected for providing misleading information. 

After entering all the required information in the corresponding boxes, click the green submit button which will direct you to a confirmation window. There, you’ll be briefed about your eligibility. If you are considered eligible, you’d be notified to visit the nearest ehsas BISP center to collect your payment. However, if you are considered ineligible, you can’t apply for any ehsas program. 

Submit your complaints via 8171 check online portal

Every day, thousands of people check their eligibility or register themselves via the 8171 check online web portal. However, the same portal can also be used to register your complaints about unnecessary deductions, problems in biometric verification, account blockage, incomplete surveys, biometric failures, etc. 

After selecting the type of your complaint, you need to enter your full name, CNIC number, mobile number, and complaint details, and click on the submit button. In a couple of days, the corresponding authorities will take action to resolve your complaint properly.  


There’s no difference between these web portals as both are active for the same cause. All the ehsas and BISP beneficiaries can visit these web portals to check their eligibility and to get registered. 

Again, there’s no difference between 7181 and 8171 SMS services since both are the same and correct. The correct ehsas code is, although, 8171, whereas 7181 is a typographical error.

Be aware of scammers 

Remember that the official code issued by the government of Pakistan for ehsas program is 8171. So if you receive any message from any other code about your eligibility, consider it completely false and fake. Even though the government is taking strict action with the help of PTA and FIA to track down those scammers who send fake ehsas SMS to people, it’s advised to stay cautious and never pay attention to any SMS that’s being sent from a code other than 8171. 

Similarly, on social media, especially Facebook, several statements and videos are viral these days that the government has changed the ehsas code, etc. but all these videos and statements are false.
