Additional secretary assured the delegation that unified pay scales for all the employees of federal government would be finalised by end of October 2012.

The delegation was led by General Secretary Chaudhry Iftikhar, who demanded an increase of 100 per cent in salaries of AGPR employees, as it has been made in many federal government departments including the FBR.

The additional secretary told the AGPR employees that both the Finance minister Dr. Hafeez Sheikh and Secretary Finance Wajid Ali Rana were not in the country due to participation in World Bank and International Monetary Fund’s annual meeting being held in Tokyo.

He said that they are expected to return on October 17 and expressed confidence that the meeting of Unified Pay scales Commission would be convened on October 19 to give final touches to recommendations.

Currently, the strength of federal government employees drawing their pay under notified government pay scales is around 295,000, but this excludes the employees of autonomous and semi autonomous institutions of the federal government.

However, there are different pay and packages for various departments of the federal government and some are even getting up to 100 per cent higher salaries than others, around 23 per cent federal government employees are getting double pay and some
are even bagging three times the normal salaries as they are posted in certain departments such as the Presidency, PM secretariat etc.

It is expected that after the unification salaries in federal government the provinces would also streamline the
pay and packages of their employees.

According to the data available with the finance ministry Punjab government has around 900,000 employees, Sindh 625,000, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa 300,000 and Balochistan government has 91,000 employees.

The proposal before the Unified Pay scales Commission is to eliminate the distortion in pay structure of the federal ministries and divisions.
