The Sindh government on Tuesday made the announcement that it would be facilitating the retired employees from the provincial service, by giving them 65percent of their monthly pension over incomplete documents, as per the reports of local media.
The decision was conveyed by the accountant general Sindh, who said that the retired employees would be able to get 65percent of their monthly pension amount even if their pension documents are not complete.
He further added that the pensioners had to face hurdles in getting their pensions owing to the incomplete documents.
He said that the process would help them in completing their documentation process within a year as the pensioners would be able to take advantage of this facility until 1 year.
Back in September, the government of Punjab took the initiative for the relief of the retired employees, who have been waiting to get their pending pensions.
According to the details, the provincial government directed all the departments to send the details of their respective outstanding pension cases to the CM by the 30th of September.
All the concerned authorities were asked to resolve the pending cases by the 31st of September deadline.
On the special directives of the CM—Usman Buzdar, all the departments are obliged to abide by the pension rules for avoiding the delay. In all the upcoming retirements of the government employees, the documents for the pension provision would be drafted a year before and would be sent to the audit officer 6 months before the date of retirement, as per the pension rules.
Furthermore, the authorities were asked to submit a monthly report or the disposal of the pending pension cases to the CM office.
