Online complaint system for overseas Pakistanis

Wafaqi Mohtasib’s great initiative to resolve issues related to expatriates

Wafaqi Mohtasib, Salman Faruqui, has launched a website as part of his institution’s efforts to extend relief to the overseas Pakistanis, remarking that 80-85 per cent complaints overall were disposed of through a conciliatory approach.
Faruqui inaugurated the website, touted to be the world’s first for a country’s overseas population, on the conclusion of a meeting attended by representatives of government departments, dealing with the aggrieved public at large, especially the overseas Pakistanis.
Senior Advisor of the Federal Ombudsman Wafaqi Mohtasib Secretariat Hafiz Ahsaan Ahmad Khokhar presented “100 days performance” report in his capacity as Grievance Commissioner for Overseas Pakistanis Cell of the Secretariat.
The meeting was convened to discuss further improvement of the working of Cell and to enhance its efficiency while the website is meant for lodging online complaints by millions of overseas Pakistanis.
In his opening remarks, Faruqui said that the Federal Ombudsman now lays emphasis on a conciliatory approach and understanding between the complainant and the respondent departments to resolve the general public’s issues, with cases generally disposed of in two months.
“Even the President of Pakistan has voluntarily taken it upon himself to decide appeals (against Mohtasib’s verdicts) within 90 days,” he said.
As regards the problems of overseas Pakistanis, Faruqui pointed out to the PIA representative the widely-reported unhygienic condition of toilets in the planes.
He also pointed out that sometimes it was difficult abroad to get tickets from PIA offices and the potential passengers were often asked to contact some particular travel agencies.
He agreed with Justice (Retd) Raza that Wafaqi Mohtasib should keep a close liaison with the provincial Ombudsmen for removing the complaints of the public, relating to provincial departments. He complimented the efforts of Hafiz Ahsaan Ahmad Khokhar to help provided much-wanted relief to the overseas Pakistanis through His cell and wished him further success and help from himself and his colleagues.
The officials of CAA told the meeting that an Airport at Gwadar would be built soon to facilitate Pak-China trade corridor.
The officials of departments such as NADRA, Passport office, Ministry of Foreign office etc. also informed the Wafaqi Mohtasib about their departments’ efforts to urgently redress the grievances of overseas Pakistanis.

    Dear Sir,
    I am a Deputy Director who was denied Ex_ Pakistan leave on the ground that I am not eligible. I was on deputation, when I contacted the highest departmental authority to know if I could get Ex Pakistan leave. I was asked to join the parent department to be eligible to get it. After joining I was denied leave. I told them that I have arranged all the travel on the assurance and even left the deputation status where I was getting all the benefits. I was humiliated again and again.
    I am ammused that the same department had allowed people to serve in UAE and remained in seniority list for more than 8 years. Still officers who are working abroad and officers on long leave are being send on deputation abroad.
    In my case, perhaps, the rules are applied on the basis of domicile or hatred. Now they are terminating my serve.
    I request you to look at my case.

    Respected Sir

    I want to inform you that one of my office colleague Mr. Rao Imran Ul Haq took loan from me in April 2017 for his wife’s operation and medical need. He was working with me since 2015 as employee of Tourism Development & Investment company since 2015.

    I gave him 10000 AED with thepromise that he will return my amount in four installment, on September 2017 I approached him to pay my loan which I gave him for humanity, he said he has some family issues and will pay all my outstanding amount in November 2017, he gave me a cheque of 8000 AED having cheque000151.

    On 30th November he again requested me to wait for couple of months before depositing the cheque because he has financial problem and can’t settle my loan. I once again gave him the chance. In January I contacted him again for the outstanding amount but he didn’t reply me so I deposited the cheque which was returned by bank because of insufficient funds and informed me that NBAD will call me to collect the report.

    After that I went to Pakistan for my personal work, when I returned from Pakistan I came to know that he has escaped` from the country and left the company without any notice. I approached the company to settle my outstanding amount from his end of service benefit but company refused to do so and informed me that he has no end of service and final settlement amount as he left the company without any notice.

    I am Pakistan national and send my remittance to Pakistan, I also got remittance card for overseas Pakistan organization.

    In the light of above I would request you to approach Pakistan Law and enforcement agencies to recover my outstanding amount and take all necessary legal action against him

    Please find the attached supporting document. In Pakistan I authorized my father in Law Mr. Sheikh Ejaz to do all the correspondence and formalities for this case his cell No +923008237346.

    1) Copy of cheque.

    2) Bank Letter for bounce cheque

    3) Rao Imran Ul Haq Passport Copy

    4) Police letter request in the name of bank
