PBC pensioners’ woes
PAKISTAN Broadcasting Corporation (PBC) pensioners’ woes are piling up by each passing day. It is all due to officials’ apathy towards the welfare of pensioners. Distressingly, the arrears, even after the lapsing of financial year 2010-2011, still remain unpaid. To rub salt to pensioners’ wounds, increase in pension, as allowed in current financial year 2011-2012, has not been adjusted in their meager pension.
The pensioners have been left at the mercy of paucity of funds. The information minister is requested to probe into the matter and ask that the issue be resolved as soon as possible.
