The government of PTI has started a process to identify all retired government employees for pension payments. All the ministries and divisions have been sent Pensioners’ Identity Card forms and proformas, prepared by the Accountant General Pakistan Revenue (AGPR), to identify their respective retired employees.
Moreover, the widows and beneficiaries of late government employees will be issued pensioners’ identity cards, after inquiry and confirmation of data by the corresponding ministries and divisions.
Proformas and pensioners’ ID card forms need to be correctly filled and submitted to the respective accounts office so that they can be issued pensioner identity cards.
