ISLAMABAD: The National Assembly Standing Committee on Postal Services on Tuesday directed the ministry to review the draft of "The Pakistan Postal Services Management Board (Amendment) Bill, 2008" to avoid legal complications so that the final draft of the bill could be considered in the next meeting.
The committee met under the chairmanship of MNA Pir Muhammad Aslam Bodla to discuss the draft of the bill.
MNAs Sher Muhammad Baloch, Gul Muhammad Khan Jakhrani, Miss Palwasha Khan, Raja Muhammad Asad Khan, Imrana Saeed Jamil, Molvi Agha Muhammad, Moulana Abdul Malik Wazir, Mrs Bushra Rehman and Mrs Belum Hasnain, mover of the bill, were present in the meeting.
The committee appreciated the Postal Life Insurance (PLI) Policy and directed the ministry to launch a proper media campaign to motivate masses to avail the insurance policy which would not only help it generate revenue but also facilitate their policy holders financially.
The committee further directed the ministry to offer more incentives to the Life Insurance Policy holders so that they could prefer to avail their services.
The committee strongly supported the view point of the Federal Minister for Postal Services that Ministry of Finance should not impose unnecessary financial cut on the incentives being provided to the employees of the ministry.
