  1. Why not sbp impose penality on those banks who are not giving inflation allowance to its staff ..kindly take action on such banks .

  2. HBL has a poor track record . It has been fined several times to the detriment of the shareholders. How many officers have been fired post this fiasco or the earlier NY fiasco . Instead these Babas want to serve till 65. Trash Bank.
