Raja Pervaiz Ashraf Minister of IT

 

Raja Pervez Ashraf 

Honorable Federal Minister

Information Technology   

Islamabad 12th June 2012

Subject: Legitimacy of PTET (Pension) Rules

Respected Sir,

Your kind attention is invited to “Telecommunication Employees Pension Trust Fund (Pension) Rules 2012” made by PTET Board of Trustees under the powers conferred by sub-section (9) of Section 44 of the Pakistan Telecommunication (Reorganization) Act 1996. The rules were approved by Ministry of Information Technology & Telecom and published in the official gazette vide SRO 525(I)/2012 dated 22nd May 2012. The Rules were approved and notified by the Ministry despite the fact that Board of Trustees was not authorized, under trust law, to make such rules.

Ministry of IT&T being custodian of Sovereign Guarantee, extended to Telecommunication Employees against their Terms and Conditions of Service and rights including Pensionary Benefits, by the Parliament and counter-guaranteed by the Company, chose to notify the rules altering the vested rights of the employees to their disadvantage.

Ministry has consistently ignored hundreds of representations lodged by hapless pensioners urging the Ministry to play its role in implementing Pensionary Benefits notified by the Federal Government on 5th July 2010 & 4th July 2011.

Ministry has chosen to ignore Supreme Court judgment announced on 7th October 2011 where honorable Court has held that Terms and Conditions of service of Telecommunication cannot be altered to their disadvantage by PTCL/GOP. Ministry has chosen to ignore Islamabad High Court Judgment announced on 21st December 2011 where PTET was directed to pay the Pension etc. according to increase announced by the Government alongwith arrears, if any.

Ministry, instead of saving the poor pensioners from costly legal battles, has gone on to up the ante for pensioners by notifying illegal Pension Rules to the detriment of Pensioners Rights. It is humbly requested that Ministry may kindly be directed to withdraw the Rules and direct PTET to pay pension according to increases notified by the Government.

  8. Yeh Raja kaya kr skta he……. yeh to khud sb se bara chor he…. is se koi umeed ni ki ja sakti….. mein Raja Pervaiz Ashraf ko boht Achi tarah janta hu…… Wapda me kam Corruption ki he isnay.. Allah hamari madad karay ga …Aur cheif justice hamay hamara haq dilay ga….Insha Allah…


  9. Vohra sahib pl try to stage all neglicted ptcl pensioners under one emberella, I have observed that all are doing at their own, atleast we all should stand together so that a STRONG POWER could be countered against BAIGHARAT HUKKAM, KHUDA GHARAT KARAY SUB KO, AAMEEN !!!!!


  10. Assalamo Alaikum.Mery aziz doostoo app her waqat Allah Pak say yay dua kartay raha kareen kay who hamari hameesha madad fermaey.Yay Miniser mahkmay hamari madad karnay par tiyar naheen hain.Jab Allah Pak ka karm ho ga to sab masayal door ho jaeen gay.Aameen.Baqi apni koshish jari rakhni chahyay.Vohra sahib ka bhi shukriya kay who koshish main lagay hooen hay.Allah Hamary riziq main barkat atta karay.Aameen.


  11. Writing letters to PTCL & GOP specially Govt. of nowadays is useless. Only the way to get justice is Court of law, that requires patience and money. Delayed justice is denial justice. Only hope is Almighty Allah. Justice is too much costly. Among us no one is Hamesh Khan, Monas Illahi, Arsalan Iftikhar & management of PTCL who bear the fees of ‘Maha Bharoos’ of High and Supreme Court. Our many colleages have been departed this mortal world in the wait of justice. All pensioners are hereby requested that data of all deceased pesioners (1st july-2010 to date)may kindly be collected and submitted with the Court of Law. With best regards. May Allah bless upon us.


  12. pensioners ka sath on duty staff ki salary bhi barhai jai aur pay scale bhi revice kia jaian


  13. All the pensioners must know that the pakistani management of ptcl
    are involved in all the matters and giving advise to Eitisalat management not to increaz pension of poor pensioners including widows and orphan. The pakistani management think throug this way they can get salaries in lacs and crores and can get shabash from eitisalat management.Now we all poor pensioners must pray to Allah for saving our remaining pensionery benifits from these cruel management . But one thing must understand by the management
    ” JISKA KOI NAHI HOOTA HA USKA ALLAH HOTA HAY’ dARO US WAQT SAY JAB TUMLOGON KO THUDDAY MAR KAR NIKALA JAY , AJ TUMN LOG BARAY BARAY POST PA BAITHA HO ,? KABHI SOOCHANA TUMLOGOON KI AUQAT NAHI THI. ALLAH KA SHUKKAR ADAKARO R APNAY ZULM KI MAFI MANGO, WARNA YEH BHOOKAY PENSIONERS RAHAING TO TUM LOG BHI DO ROOTI KHANA KA QABIL NAHI RAHOGA. INSHALLAH .
