The Government of Pakistan, Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resources Development   has issued a Notification (No.7 (3)2018-EOBI dated 30-01-2019) regarding the notification of an increased rate of pension to 20% for EOBI Pensioners.

(No.7 (3)2018-EOBI) states “In exercise of the powers conferred by sub-section (a) of section 2 of employees’ Old-Age Benefits Act, 1976, the Federal Government is pleased to allow a 20% increase in the rate of pension to Rs. 6,500/- per month, with effect from 1st September 2018.

The federal government has approved a considerable increase in the old age benefits for senior citizens. Following the government’s approval, the Employees Old-Age Benefits Institution (EOBI) has announced a 20 percent rise in pensions for elderly people.
