PTCL Pensioners’ Woes

(Published in Dawn on 26-03-2017): PTCL pensioners, including widows and orphans, are in a financial crisis in these hard days. We get less than 50pc annual increase in the pension granted by the government in the federal budget since 2010.
Before the PTCL’s privatisation, most of us were federal government employees. After the privatisation, we were informed there would be no retrenchment and all the employees would get their benefits in full.
Now our case is in the Supreme Court as the PTCL filed a petition for review of the matter. Since all high courts have decided the case in our favour, we request the chief justice of the Supreme Court to kindly decide the old case at the earliest and provide justice to poor retirees.
