LAHORE: Chief Justice Saqib Nisar on Sunday took notice of hefty salaries of employees working at Pakistan Kidney and Liver Institute (PKLI).
Hearing various cases at the Lahore Registry of Supreme Court, the CJP sought complete report, along with a list of doctors hired by the health facility detailing their salaries and privileges.
The apex court also sought details of the service structure of the institute’s employees, further ordering the Chief Secretary to submit the report by evening today.
The CJP observed that he was informed about PKLI appointing its doctors at a hefty salary of Rs.1.5 million each.
Earlier last month, Pakistan Kidney and Liver Institute had come under strict scrutiny after it was observed that the salaries of doctors employed there varied greatly from those of working at government hospitals.
Hearing the case, the Chief Justice comparing the salaries of both, remarked that PKLI pays its doctors a high wage of Rs. 1.5 million, as compared to doctors appointed at government hospitals who get paid Rs. 0.2 million.
