Government of Pakistan, Office of the Controller General of Accounts issued Notification on 05-11-2018 in connection with Issue / Revival Family Pension. Detail is as under:
Good news about revival of Pension!!!
[Message from Mr. Manzur Husein, former Auditor General of Pakistan, President Association for Welfare of Retired Persons].
We at AWRP continue to make relentless efforts to bring to Government notice the collective and individual problems and difficulties of retired pensioners. Such problems and difficulties are not only taken up in writing, but are pursued with Government through personal meetings by the President, Mr. Manzur Husein, with the concerned officers.
As a result of our efforts, the Controller General of Accounts (CGA), Islamabad, has confirmed in writing that if pension ceases to be payable for any reason, it can always revive if subsequent events justify the revival. Some illustrative examples are quoted in para 2 the CGA Islamabad OM No.1365/CGA/REG/3-24/2018/54 dated 5 Nov 2018, which is copied below. In addition to these illustrative examples, other family members may also become eligible for the revived family pension upon occurrence of a subsequent event.
Members are encouraged to
- bring this good news to the notice of all their friends and relatives, especially those who are not capable of appreciating pension matters intricacies; and
- to seek further guidance from AWRP. Our Executive Committee member, Agha Amir Ahmad will be glad to answer any queries in this respect. He may be contacted through:
