  1. good achvement of ptcl worker


  2. Regret despite the facts, the poor PTCL Pensioners rights being denied by Ghost PTCL Management.

    Although Government of Pakistan clearly notified for the last two years for enhancement of Pension 15pct & 20 pct respectively but its not being paid yet to the poor PTCL Pensioners.

    Despite having court order which principally passed in favor of PTCL poor Pensioners but PTCL Management denying to pay whatever Govt enhanced for the last two years.

    Medical Allowance of 25 pct of pension also been sanctioned & honorable court also passed order to pay off the such percentage to all PTCL Pensioners but its against rigidnous by PTCL Management.

    Can someone play for GOOD – LUCK of poor PTCL pensioners.

    Can Govt of of Pakistan put pressure on PTCL Management to favor all whatever its enhanced earlier fully to the poor PTCL pensioners ?

    Most of pensioners passed away & almost 4 – 5 penioners are being passed away every month but their rights are badly denying by PTCL Management.

    Who is going to answer the departed pensioners wishes ??????

    Pl consider & think over it
