A Pakpotpourri Exclusive
By: Shamsa Aftab Ali
I would like to draw the attention of concerned authorities about a serious problem that we, the aged, face regularly.The saving centers of all localities have this problem. The majority of people coming there to collect interest are old (like me being 74) with multiple illnesses.It takes hours to get the profits owing to the rush, which is a torture for most of us.But those in the saving centers insist on the presence of the owner of certificates to release the profit. It would be very helpful to give the interest to a person carrying a letter of authority provided by owner. This will be a big relief for us senior citizens.I have twice asked this, both times being denied. Although I had suggested, ID card of both awarding the authority & that receiving the authority to collect may be duly attached while also being mentioned in the letter.
I beseech the authorities to kindly facilitate the old people .
