Government mulls hefty increase in salaries
ISLAMABAD: The government is mulling a hefty increase of up to 35 percent in salaries in the federal budget 2012-13, sources told our sources.
Pay scales revision, merging of two remaining ad hoc relief allowances in pay scales and up to 35 percent increase in salaries are three options being considered for the next budget, the sources said on Wednesday.
Economic managers of the country along with a pay committee have developed three formulas for salary increase package. According to the sources, a 50 percent ad hoc relief allowance announced in 2010 and 15 percent announced in 2011 have been proposed for merger in pay scales, the new pay scales to be applicable from July 1.
"Merging of two remaining ad hoc relief allowances in pay scales will collectively jack up pay scales by 65 percent… the merger will result in an automatic increase in salaries by seven percent," the sources added.
The three ratios, which have been prepared for submission before the federal cabinet for approval, seek to allow increase in salaries by 25 percent, 30 percent and 35 percent. The cabinet will be requested to select any one of these ratios keeping in view the fiscal space availability with the government.
The proposed salary increase will automatically increase the three ratios – 25 percent to 32 percent, 30 percent to 32 percent and 37 percent to 42 percent – when the seven percent increase impact by merging of two ad hoc relief allowances is included in new pay scales.
Other proposals under consideration are 45 to 50 percent increase in house rent and a 100 percent rise in conveyance and medical allowances.
