Pensioner woes

Sir: I would like to draw the attention of all concerned, especially the Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication, towards the humanitarian issue being faced by more than 40,000 telecom pensioners across Pakistan.

These federal government pensioners, including 12,000 widows and orphans, have been living in miserable conditions for the last three years due to the denial of the increases in pension and medical allowance as announced in 2010-11, 2011-12 and even the current year 2012-13 by the government.

 

These people served the nation as well as the government all their lives but are now being deprived of the usual — not special — increases.

 

The Pakistan Telecommunication Employees Trust (PTET), working under the Ministry of IT and Telecommunications, is reluctant to grant these increases. The prime minister is requested to take notice of this disobedience of the government’s orders.

  1. TAUQEER SAB AP KI BARI MAHARBANI ALLA AS KA AJAR DUSRE DUNYA ME DE GA


  2. WHAT I SAY TO PTET ? PTET COMPLETELY FAILED IN THEIR VISION TO CARING FOR ITS BENEFICIARIES. I.E. PENSIONERS. THIS ORGANISATION VICTIMIZING PENSIONERS, UNLAWFULLY JOINTLY WITH PTCL(ETISALAT).
    CJP MAY TAKE DRASTIC ACTION AGAINST PTET & PTCL(ETISALAT) FOR THEIR UNLAWFUL DIRECTIVES. ALL PTCL PENSIONERS CENSURE PTET FOR THEIR INJUSTICE ACTIVITIES. PTET WITHOUT ANY FURTHER DELAY ARRANGE PTCL PENSIONERS PAYMENT OF THEIR PENSION AMOUNT DIFFERENCE ARREARS WITH PROFIT IN ACCORDANCE BUDGET ANNOUNCEMENT 2010. 2011 & 2012 WITHOUT ANY CLASSIFICATION.
    THIS WILL BE BETTER & THE BEST INTEREST OF PTET AS WELL AS PTCL(ETISALAT).
