Salaries increase 20 percent & Pension 30 percent - Budget 2011-2012 employees news - daily aajkal Lahore 31-5-2011

The proposals on salary and pension package being finalised in the Ministry of Finance would be presented before the federal cabinet in a special budget session on June 3.
The Ministry of Finance is likely to propose to the cabinet a revision of pay scales by merging some eight ad-hoc relief allowances in the new pay scales, however, the 30-50 percent increase in salaries announced in the budget 2010-11 would not be merged into the revised pay scales. The proposal seeks to revise the pay scales upward by merging eight ad-hoc relief allowances and allowing further increase in salaries ranging between 5-20 percent keeping in view the fiscal space available with the federal government.
The Finance Ministry will propose revision in pay scales with further increase in salaries with four options like 5, 10, 15 or 20 percent in accordance with the fiscal space available with the government, said the sources.
The ministry is also likely to propose to the federal cabinet that if expenditures on option number one are not within the available resources, then ad-hoc relief allowance ranging between 30-50 percent on existing pay scales should be considered.
The sources informed this scribe that constitution of the Pay and Pension Commission was also part of the budget package. The commission would be tasked with completing the proposals on monetisation of perks and privileges of officers of grade 17-22 in the first phase.
The commission would recommend monetisation of perks and privileges like house, car, driver, telephone and servants in its reports to be finalised and presented to the Finance Ministry by January 2012. The recommendations of the Pay and Pension Commission would be implemented in the budget of the fiscal year 2012-13.
According to the sources, the government is set to announce 30 percent increase in pension of its retired employees, irrespective of their retirement year. They said the government had increased its employees’ salaries by 50 percent and pension by only 20 percent in the budget 2010-11. But this time, the government is planning to satisfy pensioners in the upcoming budget by increasing their pension by 30 percent.

    Islamabad (may 30, 2012 / Daily Express) – Federal Government of Pakistan has decided to increase leave encashment from 6 months to one year in annual budget 2012-2013.

    It is also decided to launch “Hiring Monetization Rental Ceiling” for govt employees from next fiscal year.

    It is also decided after merging ad-hoc relief allowances of last two years in basic pays, the net increase in salaries would be 5% to 15%.

    It has Passed one year and previous issue of increase in pension has yet not been solved. It seems very strange ,when we have been declared transfer employees and we got increase in pension intact as other federal govt. employees up to 2009 and has happend in 2010 and on ward. It is point to ponder ,whether we have changed our nationality or something else.
    It is misery for us that No authority is considering this issue seriously.
    We all must be united and delegations be sent to see Honourable PM with the request that pensioners of PTCL may be given their due rights.

    With best wishes

    Govt. Primary School teachers in sindh placed in grade 9 even those who selected on merit by a test conducted by IBA-Sukkur supervised by the world bank and declared as a fair test but whats the outcome, teachers placed in grade 09 only, means a teacher is euqal to a clerk then it means that teacher should sit whole day and just complete his duty hours, thats a horrible thing that we are doing with our nation, teaching field should be very attractive and selection should be done on merit and check n balance should be maintained very strictly. Hope sindh govt will upgrade all PST’s post to grade 12 at least.

    PTCL or PTET ki niyat sahi nahin lagti.Agar bohat zor lagaya bhi to 6 mahiney baad shayad 10% pension mein izafe ka elan ker dein.
    Jub tak hangama nahin kiya jaye ga yehi zulm hota rahe ga.Court se bhi koi umeed nahin lagti wahan to kursi kursi ka khel ho raha hey.Itni lambi lambi date de kar pareshan karna hey or kya.
    Standing committee k hukm ki kya hesyat hey?Sirf time pass kerna hey or kuch bhi nahin.


  7. Yes, it is good News for Pensioners. But what kind of acction NA Standing Committee has been taken yet to arrange/issue the previous pension which was issued in Govt. Budget 2010-2011. Because no good news still PTCL Pensioner received about their previous held pension as per NA Standing comittee order. And what kind of procedure PTCL & PTET will be adopted to arrange/give the arrear pension payment to PTCL Pensioner. Lot of PTCL Pensioners are still confused that how & when to implements NA Standing Committee orders.

    In this connection, I therefore, requested to all PTCL Pensioners should be prepared their mind about what action PTCL Pensioners will be taken if the Previous held Pension will not issued comming month. Pensioners should give their suggestions by this fourm. Thanks.
