Violation of merit and seniority of retired employees
Islamabad—It has been learnt through reliable sources that serious irregularities as well as nepotism has been committed by the Federal Government Employees Housing Foundation (FGEHF), in allotment of plots to the retired employees.
The foundation had announced a new housing scheme in sector F-14, Islamabad in 2015 after seeking approval of the Prime Minister. In this scheme federal government employees were to be allotted plots in accordance with their seniority based on date of retirement. The scheme envisaged 20% quota for the retired employees and up to rupees 100,000 were charged from them in advance in accordance with their grades.
The seniority list for the in-service employees was notified and it was announced that the seniority list for the retired ones will be issued after Eid. It has now been learnt that in-order to especially benefit some particular people, the retried employees have been segregated in new and old retirees and their quota have been separated. In this way it has been planned to allot plots of land to almost all the employees who have retired during the past two years, whereas the employees who retired prior upto Feb, 2014 who are not only senior in age and waiting since long for allotment of plot have been deprived from there legitimate right of allotment of plot.
Accordingly the criteria fixed and approved for allotment of plots at the time of introduction of the scheme has been totally violated in complete disregard of merit. In fact the employees who have retired before March 2014 have been ditched. These retired employees have demanded of the prime minister to take notice of this serious irregularity and take disciplinary action against the delinquent official of the Housing Foundation.
