Government announces increase in employees’ salaries

- June 15, 2013 - Updated 1115 PKT - From Web Edition

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Finance Ishaq Dar Saturday announced to raise salaries of government employees by 10 percent following recommendations of the committee tasked to review its feasibility, Geo News reported.


Finance Minister Ishaq Dar had constituted a committee to review the possibility of an increase in the salaries of government servants on late Thursday.


The committee proposed 7.5 percent raise in the salaries, however, Dar said the government has increased it by 10 percent.

The PML-N budget was widely criticized for not raising the salaries of government employees, while the prices of all commodities including milk, sugar, cigarettes, petrol, diesel and CNG were raised because of the raise in the GST.

Senator Dar said the raise in salaries of government employees would be effective from July 01.

FM Ishaq Dar, after great ‘hue & cry’ raised Govt employee salaries 10%, well & good, but what about the 180 million people MINUS Govt Employees, they are also citizens of Pakistan & to sustain lives, they also need Roti, Kapra, Makan? Residents of Rai Wind, Jati Umra, Bilawal House, Palace in London, having Nihari, Payey, Nan, Lassi, in Nashtay, Broast, Hamburger in Lunch & Dinner, who will give Relief to above 60% Awam living below Poverty Line, in Pakistan? Speak please!!!

Such belated awards are killer-poison for the government. Why not act before protest and earn goodwill?

After national pressure, Noon League yielded. Another example that we should not stay silent if there is something going against us. Good move by PML (N), this is the difference between a democracy and dictatorship
