    It is to state that my husband Muhammad Kamil Khan departed on 29 April 2011 was served at OGDCL for 30 years devotedly.
    As my husband is only bread earner of our family. I have only one daughter and son and my son is done MBA (finance). After the death of my husband we are facing great distress financially and psychologically.
    I have send an application to OGDCL they reject the application and current Managing director ogdcl Mr. Masood Siddiqui replied that the policy is only for staff not for officers. Although he was the one of the member of organization who worked hard and gave his 30 years of services to make this company successful and now after his death the company refused to help our family. Why this discrimination does the officers dont eat or the officers dont have the families.
    In this regard it is requested to please help us.

    I will always grateful to you.
