On the direction of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the government employees will get their salaries before Eid. The Ministry of Finance has been mobilised to release salaries before July 16.
In this regard, special instructions have been given to the Accountant General Pakistan Revenues (AGPR).
Last month, the federal government increased the salaries of government employees by 10% in the budget 2021-22.
Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin, in his budget speech, announced that the increase in salaries and pensions would be applicable from July 1 of this year.
The government also proposed an increase in the orderly allowance from Rs14,000 to Rs17,500 per month. Apart from this, the integrated allowance of grade 1 to 5 employees was increased from Rs450 to Rs900.
Similarly, to minimise the inflationary pressures, especially on the labourers and workers, the government has increased the minimum wage to Rs20,000 per month.
