Prime Minister Imran Khan directed the Employees Old Age Benefits Institution (EOBI) to provide maximum facilities to the old-aged pensioners by ensuring payment of pension through banks and other cash transfer mediums.

Chairing a briefing on the EOBI, the prime minister instructed to table the pending matters among the Centre and provinces before the Council of Common Interests (CCI) for early resolution to ensure employees’ welfare.

Special Assistant to PM on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Syed Zulfiqar Abbas Bukhari, EOBI Chairman Azhar Hameed and other senior officials also attended the meeting.

The prime minister was briefed on the functioning of the EOBI and steps being taken to improve its working, and facilities introduced for disbursement of pension to the pensioners.

He was informed that the EOBI would soon hold countrywide Pension Day to encourage the employees and owners for efficiently performing their duties.

The prime minister was told that the registration process for employees and workers was being eased and digitised to get rid of corruption and other malpractices.

He was informed that a data bank of the registered employees would be formulated, while a modern complaint management system would be launched.

The EOBI also presented a proposal to the prime minister for construction of low-cost houses under the EOBI and Pakistan Real Estate Investment and Management Company. Under this plan, 5,500 houses would be built measuring three and five marlas.

Separately, Imran Khan directed the Ministry of Power to expose the gas and power thieves and take indiscriminate action against them.

In a meeting with Minister for Power Omar Ayub Khan and Special Assistant to Prime Minister Nadeem Babar, he appreciated the successful drive by the power minister and his team to curb the theft of gas and electricity.

The power minister updated the prime minister on the outcomes of the countrywide anti-theft drive. The special assistant also apprised the prime minister of his visit to Turkmenistan. Meanwhile Imran Khan telephoned Pakistan People’s Party leader Qamar Zaman Kaira to condole the death of his son in a road accident.
