The current Gilani administration has taken a very commendable step which is aimed at empowering and enabling the employees of the public sector organization. They are offering 12% stock options to the employees of their respective organization.
The program Benazir Employees Stock Option Scheme offers stock options from the 80 public organization. This has been lauded by the employees and people are eagerly waiting for this scheme. But this been met with mixed reactions given the mismanagement and not-so-transparent other government schemes. Benazir Income Support Progam has already been in the open and people are criticizing it for favoritism, nepotism and corruption.
The government must make the whole process of application and granting of this program very transparent and accountable. Unions must not be involved in it and the deserving employees should be given preference.
