Unified/Revised pay structure committee asked govt to announce new pay scales for employees

Announce New Pay Scales for Government Employees – Dr. Ishrat Hussain Pay Committee Proposes

Islamabad ( Saturday, October 27, 2012) – Dr Ishrat Husain-led committee constituted to remove distortions in public sector salary structures has asked the government to create fresh pay scales in order to remove the existing anomalies and has refused to become party to any cosmetic measures, said officials on Friday.

Creation of Fresh Pay Scales
“We have conditioned the finalising of the committee’s recommendations on the removal of existing distortions because just lip service will not serve the purpose,” said Husain. “The creation of fresh pay scales is necessary to attracting talented people into public service as with the existing pay structure of BS-17, no one will come into the public sector.”

Next Meeting after Eid-ul-Azha
Husain said that the committee will meet after Eid to review the work done by the provincial governments for putting in place fresh scales for employees. “Civil service reforms cannot be achieved without putting in place a merit-based policy and a result-based incentive structure,” he maintained.

Transportation Monetization

The committee has also criticised the government’s flawed monetisation policy for transportation. “The car monetisation policy of the government has not been put out in the spirit it was conceived by the last pay committee,” said Husain.

“Although the government claimed it reduced expenditures by implementing the car monetisation policy, it would have done much better had there been ownership of these reforms.”An example of the distortions in the implementation of the transport monetisation scheme, say sources, is the fact that drivers for monetised cars are still claiming overtime allowances.

“These claims are being approved by the bosses of these drivers, despite the fact that the government has provided drivers Rs10,000 in cash and overtime allowances have been disallowed.”

Housing Monetization
(Another group of experts and bureaucrats are now working to devise a plan for the monetisation of housing under the chairmanship of Deputy Chairman Planning Commission Dr Nadeem Ul Haq.)

“The existing distortions in the pay structure can be removed without burdening the national exchequer and the committee is working towards devising a feasible plan for achieving an efficient civil bureaucratic structure in the country,” said sources in the finance ministry.
