  4. Dear PTCL Pensioenrs
    AoA to all

    Just I want to appreciate the efforts of Chairman PTCL Pensioners Action Committee Mr Mohammad Tauqeer, of Sialkot. Allmighty Allah give you courage and satisfaction for long life for you and your children. You are really taking the prayers of depressed PTCL Pensioners. All Pensioenrs are praying for you successf (Aameen-suma-Aameen)

    Let one thing to be clear that Minister agreed to settle the problem, but as already highlighted in the comments of others that this situation happen due to non-implementation of of Budget announcement 2010-2011.
    So first honourable Minister is requested to restored the earlier budget announcement for current remaining dues of 8% in pension and 20-25% of medical allowance as broadcasted in Budget 2010-2011 documents.
    Further next Budget 2011-2012 is also on our heads. A transparent policy guiding notification may be obtained from the Pay and Pension Commission of Pakistan or from the Parliament and send to the PTCL management for execution in next coming budget, so the PTCL management not try to chat with any unfriendliness endorsement to the PTCL Pensioners in future.
    Please keep open eyes to all matters of current and future.

    Best Regards
    Abdul Salam, PTCL Pensioner

    Federal Minister Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan assured the PTCL pensioners that their problems would be solved soon and their pensions would be increased in the coming budget. But this is not our present problem. The PTCL Management and PTET has yet not given us balance 7% of PENSION 2010-2011 with specified Medical allowance.

    Please highlight this on the website and other media, although the pensioners are doing extra efforts to get resolve the problem.

  7. M.Q.SIDDIQUI says:

    The statement of THE NEWS are some wrong, increases of pension & medical allowance would be applied as announced budges 2010-11. The issue of increased pension in the coming budget is a separate issue.
    Please high light PTCL grievances as PTCL pensioners aggrieved being pension not increased for fiscal year 2010-11 accordingly. Thanks
