University of Karachi Service Pension Statute, 1972
Section/Order/Article/Rule/Regulation Head Note
Section-26

The university contested her claim primarily on the ground that her husband had not put in the minimum of ten year qualifying service to make his service pensionable so she was not entitled to claim any concession towards pension under the family assistance package. The late husband of the appellant had put in only about five years of service, well short of rendering qualifying length of service which only would have entitled his widow to claim any concession granted towards the quantum of pension. As stated earlier, only where a person renders qualifying service under pension rules that he becomes eligible for any further concession that may be granted towards pension from time to time. Thus the University’s family assistance package, in so far as it relates to enhanced pensionary benefits, was payable to the family of such deceased employee who had rendered minimum qualifying service in his lifetime under the provisions of the University of Karachi Service Pension Statute, 1972. This appeal, therefore, fails, which is hereby dismissed. .....Syeda Sakina Riaz =VS= Federation of Pakistan, (Civil), 2018 (2) [5 LM (SC) 184] ....View Full Judgment
