NADRA awarded the contract of Double Data Entry services to NIFT for the Benazir Income Support Program of Government of Pakistan in October 2009. NIFT completed Data Entry of 0.71 million BISP forms. Each form entered contained more than 110 alpha numeric fields. A heads up data entry mechanism followed.
Every milestone of the project was achieved within only 50 days, with more than 98.5 percent accuracy at its two facilities setup in Karachi and Islamabad. The project was completed with approx. 250 operators deployed at each site. A dedicated VPN link was established between NIFT and NADRA offices for online verification of applicant’s data.
NIFT was later awarded the contract for completing Double Data Entry of at least 3 million more BISP forms, over a period of one year in 2010. NIFT completed more than 4.57 million forms within ‘9’ months of the contract award. The data entry accuracy rate for the project was 100%.
