    My opinion that why Govt. increase 15 to 20 percent pay on “running basic” instead of increase of 50 to 60 percent on “initial basic”.
    The impact of overall budget expenditure will be same but why budget makers do not work on this?
    On increasing of 15 to 20 percent; those recently join cant not get more and therefore do not find attraction in govt. institutions while those of lot of years of service get more.(Most of them only passing time in govt. institutions …involve in corruption…thats why most of the Govt. Institution like Pakistan Railway, PIA etc… are in huge loss).

    For eg. In BPS-17 on increasing 15 to 20 percent on running salary the person recently join would get 1800 approx. while those who have service of 20 years plus would get 5000 to 6000 approx.
    But if increase would be 50 to 60 percent on initial basic then the difference of 4000 to 4500 would get by all employees of same grade. This will give more attraction to those recently join…..and almost no object would be raised from those who served for 20 plus years in govt. service and budget burden would be same.

    Actually the problem is that those who have ability in Pakistan…they leave Pakistan or they left behind intentionally.
    How much salary of employees would be increased should be asked from expert.
    Actually we remain “andho main kana raja”…like sartaj aziz, shaukat aziz, abdul hafeez etc………
    They dont have guts even cannot get these guts if live for 100 years…….
