Copy of IHC Decision-20% Special Allowance to All the Federal Govt Employees

Islamabad High Court (IHC) on 18-06-2013 has made a decision to grant 20% Special Allowance to all the Federal Govt Employees. Earlier in March 2013, Ex-PM Raja Pervez Asharf had announced 20% Special Allowance to the Secretariat and Ministries and Divisions Employees and the Employees of Attached Departments, Semi Govt and Corporations were deprived of this allowance.

This allowance will be granted wef 1st march 2013 as the Employees of Ministries & Divisions are availing the same since 1st March 2013.

The judgment says that “ The Grant of Special Allowance @ 20% to the employees working in the Federal Ministries/Divisions and withholding of the same from Federal Govt employees of other Secretariat, Departments and Statutory Bodies where Govt Scale are applicable is discriminatory  in nature as such offensive to the constitutionally granted rights of these employees. All the Federal Govt Employees are therefore held entitled to Special Allowance @ 20% with effect from the employees working in the Federal Ministries/Divisions have been allowed.”

  • Dear Shumaila
    Would u please say something about the provincial govt. employees for getting this allowance? Is there any way out in this regard?

    • DearMuhammad Naeem, it is clear in the judgment that this allowance will only be admissible to FG Employes.

  • Dear ma'am


    When u r going to tell us about the happy news of implementation of this order as this will only increase our some salaries... 10% announced by the government only covered our income tax which will be recovered from us.......would u believe that after budget my income tax will be deducted at Rs 2100/- PM (Approx),,, whereas increase is Rs 2560/- only...... Hai na nice joke of Govt.....?

  • Dear, I’m the employee of an Organisation which is an attached department of Federal Govt , comes under the Ministry of Defence.. Employees over here are over due for promotion as since its creation the employee who was appointed as UDC is still at the same Cadre i.e. still UDC till to date since 23 years. That is approximately same for the all the lower posts too. There are approx 08 clerks and the Organisation’ authorities always say that there is no sanction bullet in Asst, Asst Incharge or Superintendent so we cannot promote u people. Is this justified. Please do guide us.
    While recruiting different categories criteria for quotas are not fulfilled. Women quota is not fulfilled to whom should we complain. Kindly do favour for us and guide us the way out.
