Instead of refund, it would be more ideal if the PNP FED simply re-issue the PTCFOR to holders/bearers for the remaining indicated validity period.
If there was six months left in the PTCFOR, then PNP FED could just issue a new id to the bearer valid for six months, granting that PTCFOR have a validity of one year.
They are issuing PTCFORs now anyway under new guidelines, i think for 12k to 15k.
It will be unfair if the fees shall be simply refunded because only the receipted portion will be covered, not the portion which went to grease money.
Considering government's cash position, a refund no matter how small or big is highly improbable.
