Ad hoc reliefArchive
THE federal finance minister while announcing the budget for 2014 had promised 10pc ad hoc relief to government employees. Luckily, this ad hoc relief has been paid to all government employees except those of the Pakistan Central Cotton Committee (PCCC). The PCCC is a semi-government cotton research organisation, but the ad hoc relief announced in 2014 has still not been paid to PCCC employees for reasons not known to the employees.
The PCCC vice president is incidentally the textile minister. As a semi-government organisation, the PCCC is governed by the same rules and regulations of service as are other government employees. So the ad hoc relief once announced cannot be taken back by the government. The textile industry minister should look into the matter for early disposal.
The federal finance minister, while announcing the budget announced a 7.5pc ad hoc relief for government employees for pay and pension.
But PCCC employees are not sure if they will get it.
PCCC employees are, however, thankful to the federal finance minister for enhancing medical relief to government employees.
