President directs EOBI to pay outstanding pension dues to a widow


Islamabad : President Dr. Arif Alvi has set aside an impugned order of the Wafaqi Mohtasib on a widow’s plea, directing the Employees’ Old Age Benefits Institution (EOBI) to make payment of pension arrears since the death of her husband during 2017.
