Dr Ishrat not drawing salary from World Bank but pension
Dr Ishrat Husain, Adviser to the Prime Minister, has erroneously mentioned during a live press conference in Press Information Department that he was drawing a salary from World Bank, though he wanted to say “pension,” said a press release issued by the PID.
He has declared this fact in tax returns and asset declaration statement.
Dr Husain retired from World Bank in 1999 after serving there for 20 years. As per policy of the World Bank for the retired employees, he is also drawing pensionary benefits.
Dr Husain is not drawing any pensionary benefits from his services rendered as Governor, State Bank of Pakistan and Director, IBA Karachi.
