The Hon’ble Federal Ombudsman Mr. Ejaz Ahmad Qureshi taking cognizance of the large number of complaints being received from the senior citizens and pensioners who were being maltreated at some National Saving Centres has taken suo motu notice.

The Federal Ombudsman has deputed an Inspection team comprising Senior Advisor Mr. Ahmad Farooq, Mr. Pervez Haleem Consultant (Implementation) and Mr. M. Javed Chaudhary Director Media to spot check and verify the complaints of the clients at these centres.

It would be recalled that the Central Directorate of National Savings has billions of rupees worth of deposits belonging to poor pensioners and senior citizens’ hard-earned savings.

For this purpose, they have to visit National Saving centres periodically where proper treatment and facilities are often missing causing great resentment and hardship to senior citizens. The inspection team will submit its report to the Federal Ombudsman for taking further action.
