Letter of Arif Hussain Khan, a senior citizen, Lahore
October 8, 2010
It is brought to your kind notice that in recent budget (June-2010) Govt. of Pakistan passed increase in pension vide Government of Pakistan Finance Division (Regulations Wing) Letter # F.4(1)-Reg.6/2010-721 Islamabad, the 5th July, 2010 and grant of medical allowance vide Government of Pakistan Finance Division (Regulations Wing) Letter # F.16(1)-Reg.6/2010-778 Islamabad, the 5th July, 2010 for retired persons. But it is very strange that pension and medical allowance of over 39 thousand pensioners of PTCL not yet increased since more than 3 months passed while other department’s pensioner received increased pension and medical allowance as per Govt. announcement.
In such high inflation in country it is very difficult for PTCL pensioners to continue their lives. Anxiety of PTCL pensioners is increasing. Hoping an early action.
Pray for your long and prosperous life.
For your reference 3 Letters are attached about Notifications.

Letter to Editor Daily English Newspaper ” Dailytimes ” dated September 8, 2010:
Disappointment of PTCL pensioners
Sir: Pensions have been increased by the government of Pakistan notification vide No. F.4(1)Reg.6/2010/721, dated July 5, 2010 by 15-25 percent and their medical allowance has been increased by 25 percent vide No. F.16(1)Reg.6-2010/778, dated July 5, 2010.
However, the pensioners of PTCL are still deprived of this facility. These retired employees have spent their entire youth in serving this company; at least now at an old age they deserve some rest. They should not have to worry about arranging dowry for their daughters’ wedding or about their medical treatment. It is requested to the PTCL management that PTCL employees be given their pensions and medical allowance as all other employees are.
