Pak eunuchs hired for recovering outstanding dues enjoying job


The first batch of five persons from the trans-gender community was hired by authorities here after the Supreme Court last month advised the government to consider appointing them for recovering outstanding payments from defaulters.

The eunuchs say they do not have a place to call their own in government offices and that they have to sit on mats in a van used for making collections but they are not complaining.
"It was difficult at first, but we are enjoying our job now," Naseebo, one of the five eunuchs hired by authorities, told the Daily Times newspaper. "We visit between 15 and 20 houses every day. People get shocked at first, but when we tell them about our job, they give us respect."

"We can work in other departments too, such as the recovery of credit cards, insurance and also do office work on computers," Naseebo said.
Apart from Naseebo, the Cantonment Board in Clifton area here hired Roopa, Shahzadi, Nasira and Roofi Khan for recovering dues.
Naseebo's colleague Shahzadi said the bosses are happy with them and sometimes reward them for a job well done. However, the team is not aware about the collections they have made so far.
