K.W.S.B. MISMANAGEMENT.

Byline: S.H. Jafarey-Karachi

The Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) appears to be one of the most mismanaged departments in the city. On July 24, I requested a water tanker (No. 240721085). The next day, I called again, and this time I was allocated a complaint number instead. After waiting for another day and getting in touch with the department with great difficulty, I was told that I may get the tanker in the evening, but that never happened. Nothing has happened so far.

MINIMUM WAGES:

By: Taha Soomro-Karachi

_: Many small and medium enterprises do not revise the minimum wages of their employees in accordance with the government's updated orders, and escape any possible investigation by paying the salaries in cash. The relevant ministry should direct all commercial organisations to disburse the wages of their employees, including those on daily wages, through bank accounts. It will help keep a record of who is paying what to whom.

P.E.C. REGISTRATION:

By: Muhammad Nauman-Sialkot

_: As an engineering graduate, I applied to the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) for registration in July 2020. It has been a year now, but my application is still pending for reasons unknown. Moreover, no one at the PEC bothers to attend the telephone calls on the numbers mentioned on the official website. What is the point of flashing phone numbers when they provide no help?

SMART STRATEGY:

By: Ikram Abbasi-Rawalpindi

_: There are two sources of acquiring immunity against any viral disease: natural and vaccine-induced. It can be argued that in our fight against Covid, the element of natural immunity is rather ignored. This is despite a recent study in research journal Science which concluded that natural immunity provided ultrapotent protection against the variants of concern. Implementing a smart strategy might help us achieve herd immunity much more quickly than through the vaccines.
