President of National Bank of Pakistan Syed Iqbal Ashraf has received 1 crore 70 lakh rupees gratuity from the NBP despite the fact the State Bank has upturned objection to the payment of his bonus.
In a current AGM the SBP officials rejected payment of huge bonus to NBP President because of different reasons including misconduct in the bank.
NBP President is getting 65 lakh rupees salary per month that is in addition to other perks and luxury cars etc. NAB and FIA perhaps are sleeping over corruption in NBP
