Quaid Welfare Society (Regd.)
The Secretary,
Ministry of Information Technology, Telecommunication Division, /    Government of Pakistan, Civil Secretariat, Islamabad. 

REPRESENTATION:- AGAINST  DECISION   OF   PAKISTAN   TELECOMMUNICATION   EMPLOYEES TRUST(PTET) VIDE ITS 54TH MEETING HELD ON 15TH JAN 2011. WHEREBY ONLY COSMETIC RELIEF IS ANNOUNCED FOR PTET PENSIONERS AGAINST THEIR ENTITLEMENT EQUAL TO FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CIVIL PENSIONERS.
We are running the Regd: Society in,the name of “Quaid Welfare Society Lahore”. The Pensioners of PTCL have approached the society and requested to take up the matter with your honour. The detail is given below:-
1.    That the impugned decision of PTET announced after miserable delay of six months, is not acceptable as the increase in pension, announced thereof, is less than that granted by Federal Government to Civil, Pensioners and Medical Allowance is skipped in full. PTET Board has ignored Office Memorandums, Govt: of Pakistan, and Finance Division No F.4(l)-Reg-6/2010/721, and F-16(l)-Reg-6/2010/778, both dated 5th July 2010, duly endorsed by Ministry of Information Technology vide Memo No.8-1/2007 coord dated 14.7.2010.
2.    That by virtue of Section 36 of Pakistan Telecommunication (Re-Organization) Act of 1996 (here-in-after called as Act), the existing terms and conditions of services of an employee of PTC, transferred to PTCL are protected. Thus, the employee is still on a plane of equality with Federal Government Employee in respect of rights and benefits. In other words the conversion of PTC (a state owned corporation) into PTCL (a limited company with majority shares of Government of Pakistan) has brought no change to his service career in respect of pay and allowances, Pension and Pensionary benefits in any manner.
3.    That PTET is bound to adopt and endorse the above noted office Memorandums of Federal Government, Finance Division, without any variation, as per legal position explained above as well as its own 14 years consistent practice, to follow Federal Government Notification is respect of increases in Pension, and Pensionary benefits, like PTCL practice in respect of increase of pay and allowances of its employees from 1996 to onward.
4.    It is submitted with great sorrow that PTET has failed to fulfill its duty with fair will and
has acted with malafide intension to deprive around about 39000 senior citizens feeding
2 millions living persons of their families, are deprive of their legitimate right of relief
/  against worst inflation of the history, against recommendations of pay and  Pension i    Commission 2010.
5.    That bare reading of Section 36 of the Act, make it crystal clear and leaves no room to doubt that pensionary benefits are well safeguarded in the statute, wherein your good self being Federal Government, is made responsible to guarantee the existing terms and conditions of service, including pensionary benefits of transferred employees.
6.    It ,is therefore, humbly prayed that your good self may. kindly intervene to fulfill your statutory obligation as GUARANTOR to take necessary action to ensure grant of increase in Pension and Medical allowance to PTET Pensioners as the rate, announced by Federal Government for its Civil Pensioners vide above mentioned Notification dated 5th July 2010.
An early action in the mater is requested.
Almighty Allah may bless upon you.
Taking you & issuing you our best cooperation.
Always of you Social Services
