Government rejects pay rise; funds diverted to election projects

Islamabad (Daily TheNews / Sunday, December 30, 2012) – It seems that the story of Unified Pay Scale and Salary increase of public servants / Govt employees has reached at his end point. Both the federal and provincial governments have refused to implement the unified pay scales for three million public sector employees from January 1, 2013,
as they want to direct development funds for elections related projects to attract voters.

Unified pay Scales (UPS)

Pay and Pension Committee
A member of the Pay Committee, which was tasked to remove anomalies in the pay structure, told The News that the provinces had refused to accept unified pay scales on the pretext that their governments were interested to utilise resources on development projects.

It is worthwhile to remind that the committee had proposed implementation of its recommendations in phases, since it was committed to place unified pay scales without burdening the national exchequer.

Revision of MP Scales
However, the federal government has already notified an increase of 35 percent in salary, perks and privileges of mighty MP-1, MP-II and MP-III scales with effect from January 1, 2013. Technocrats and retired bureaucrats will be beneficiary of this upward revision.

Finance Minister Advisor insist UPS still exist
Advisor to the Finance Minister Rana Assad Amin, who is also spokesman of the committee, said, “The unified pay scales have not so far been finalised, as the committee headed by Dr Ishrat Hussain has not yet held its meeting in this regard.”
Sources in the Finance Ministry said the executives, armed forces and judiciary would not be subject to uniform pay scales.
Pensioners may dislike the new formula. Pensioners are presently receiving pension based on higher percentage of last pay drawn.

New formula for pension
However, in new pension formula this percentage would be reduced to minimise the impact on budget, they added. Federal and provincial governments have also been reluctant to implement monetisation of housing facilities, which affected their budgets.
Transport Monetisation
There was reported massive misuse of monetisation of car facility despite the fact that employees were given cars at much lower rates. The commission recommended recovery of the cars sold to the officials, and refund of their money.

He said that monetisation of transport facility was not applicable in corporations and autonomous bodies.

Special pay package for doctors, teachers, LHW
The Pay Commission recommended special incentives and pay package for doctors, teachers, lady health workers and paramedical staff who would be willing to work in less developed districts of the country to ensure availability of health, education and other basic social services in those areas.

    Govt is playing with employees. Govt aur newspapers ki mili bhagat ne subko bewakoof banaya hua hai including AGPR. Finance ministry kabhi kehti hai provinces ko draft bheja hua hai, kabhi Pay and Pension comittee ke meeting ke bad, kabhi Ishrat Hussain country se bahir gaya hua to kabhi Hafiz Shaikh. Aur bechare ghareeb employees din ginte rehte hain. MP scales khamoshi se revise ker diye jo sare highly paid employees hain . Sharam ani chaiye.

    Meri request hai ke in jhooti khabron aur logon ke baton per apna time waste na karen. AGPR STOP SALARY AND ALL EMPLOYEES STRIKE

    Amjad ager budget se pehle salary nahi berhti to yeh Management Position (MP) Scales jo revise hue hain woh kia hai. Ager bande k pas knowledge na ho to beech men tang mat phansao. Yeh Pay and Pension committee sari bewakoof hai jo UPS de rahe the 1-1-2013 se. For your kind information budget men salary govt apne political faide k lye berhati hai werna koi necessary nahi k budget men salary berhe. Salary sirf yearly increment se berhti hai January mein.

    UPS hamara right hai aur hum iske lye fight karenge

    Story pe story dena govt ke chal hai jo wo newspapers ko rishwat de ker chal rahi hai. Govt chote employees ko caretaker govt ane tak umeed men busy rakhna chahti hai.

    Sub employees yeh samajh len ke yeh Pakistan hai yahan strike, jaloos ya boycot ke bagher to Police apki FIR bhi nahi kat ti. AGPR AND ALL EMPLYEES STRIKE SE HI KUCH HOGA NAHI TO BETHE BETHE CARETAKER GOVT AJAYEGI AUR MAMLA AGLI GOVT TAK LATAK JAYEGA AUR I AM 100% SURE KE AGLI GOVT PICHLI GOVT KA KOI PROPOSAL CONSIDER NAHI KERTI.
