PTCL Sialkot Pensioners News Published in “TheNews” & “Khabrain”

Ministry of Information Technology (IT) has miserably failed to implement federal government’s orders. According to the details, the federal government had announced increase of pension and Medical allowance in fiscal budget 2010-11.

.

.


The increase was from 15 percent to 25 percent in pension of all the pensioners retired under Government Scales. For the first time GoP introduced Medical Allowance for all the pensioners by 20 percent to 25 percent of their pension. All the departments/ divisions and ministries have given these increase except Ministry of Information Technology, which has allegedly failed to do so even after a lapse of 9-months. Especially, more than 39000 PT&T, T&T, PTC and PTCL pensioners have been lying deprived of this increase. The increase announced after 7-months was 8 percent contrary to the 15 percent announced by the federal government. Thousands of widows, orphans, sick and old retired people are still waiting for this increase announced by federal government indiscriminately. PTCL retired employees organized a protest here in Sialkot demanding increase in pension and Medical Allowance as announced by the federal government. The participants chanted slogans against PTCL management holding placards in favour of their demands. Muhammad Tauqeer, Chairman PTCL Pensioners Action Committee Sialkot said that the PTCL has not paid their share to the PTET (Pakistan Telecom. Employees Trust) which is responsible for paying pensions to the retired employees. The protesters have appealed to the President, Prime Minister and Chief Justice of Pakistan to take notice of this discrimination and to solve this issue of more than 200000 family members of these 39000 pensioners.
