Pensioners Association wants 35% increase in pension in Budget 2011-2012 : Daily English “The News” Dated 29-5-2011:

Islamabad (May 28, 2011) – Association for the Welfare of Retired Personnel (AWRP), a representative body of all the pensioners of the country, in a meeting chaired by its President Pervaiz Ahmad Butt draws the attention of the prime minister and the finance minister to grant 30% to 35% increase in pensions not given in the last year budget.

Budget 2011-12 and Employees Salary News - Daily Jang Dated 28-5-2011

It may be reminded that in the last budget all the in service personals were given 50% increase in running salaries whereas only 15% to 20% increase was given to pensioners which was a clear injustice because the effects of inflation is the same for all salaried persons.
The executive body also demanded extra 30% to 35% increase in pensions keeping in view the current inflation which is much more than 15.5% as declared by the State Bank of Pakistan.
The AWRP also called upon the governor of State Bank and the Ministry of Finance to get its order implemented by all the branches of commercial banks to disburse pensions. None of the branches of such banks has started issuance of pensions though the pensioners maintain their accounts in those banks. This year almost all the banks earned 10% profit on these accounts because of huge interest rate charged from the loonies.
At present only the National Bank of Pakistan is disbursing pensions to the retired persons.
The AWRP called upon the SBP to advise all the banks to advertise extensively on electronic and print media the procedure to get pensions from their respective banks.
The body observed that the income tax deductions made from retired employees are more than the serving employees.

  1. Dear Sirs,

    I am also a retired railway pensioner. I am hearing of a rumor or a fact about government’s decision of grant a 25% increase to all those government employees who stand retired until the year 2008. Besides I also direly need a copy of the Order passed by the Federal Service Tribunal, Islamabad on 15-12-2011 in three Appeals No. 1446(R)CS/2011, No. 1447(R)CS/2011 and No. 1448(R)CS/2011 that were filed by the three government’s pensioners. I shall always feel myself highly obliged if your goodselves could very kindly let me have the same through an attachment to my e. mail address: urprayseeker@yahoo.com. Thanks and best regards. Shaikh Fakhr-ul-Islam, Lahore.


  2. Its a good sign but cruel Management of PTCL and its slave PTET is not responding the notifications issued by Govt. Even Pension increased in last budget is yet to be paid. Poor pensioners are facing huge problems in these hard days.


  3. Dear All Pensioners of Pakistan and special
    PTCL Pensioners

    Why you are all crying. Because you all know this is Great Pakistan. President, Prime Minister, all Ministers, Senators, MNAs, Chief Justice and other Judges of Supreme and High Court and all other administration and PTCL management busy making money by every possible means. Because they have no any fear/apprehensions by Almighty Allah. They have forgotten Almighty Allah and the Day of Judgement. See they all have must reply of their nastiest deeds to Allah on the day of judgement. So all are requested to kindly pray with Allah. Because Allah is very kind on us. I have no more to say further………..

    Best Regards
