  1. Aamir Nawaz says:

    Complain on citizen portal as well.

    If we have equivalence degree why we are deprived from Mphil allowance.

  3. Fahad says:

    If you not accepting the MS Degree then why in this world you introduce it to the students... Just Stop it immediately...
    The reason is that the Corrupt Finance Ministry has no value of Educated people.. They only like corrupt people like corrupt finance secretary of one of our province, who's only motive is to make illegal money, do corruption and to degrade the educated persons....

  4. Aziz says:

    M.Sc allowance?

  5. Hamza says:

    I have heard that Islamabad High Court has given decision (regarding M.Phil Allowance) in the favor of Ministry of Finance. I do not know how easily can we lose this case?

  6. Aftab says:

  11. suliman says:

    Hi friends, i have plane to go to court against this discrimination ,but i needs some friends who are eager to go to court , any one who are interested should join me to go ahead

    • Aamir Nawaz says:

      No need to upload the notification as it is available on this web site. Now after issuance of this notification it is very clear n easy for a court of law to decide. Just a case is needed to be filled. If u file the case amount of allowance I.e 2500 must b challenge as it should be 5000 pm

  12. MS degree Holder says:

    Hi guys,

    I have seen a letter from HEC (M Ismail, Consultant Quality assurance Division) to Finance division GoP, {Ref- 1-1 (NFQ)/QAD/2017/HEC49-/76 dated 23rd May 2017}.

    In short, This letter state that ALL THOSE HAVING MPHILL OR MS DEGREE (18 year of education) ARE ELIGIBLE TO DRAW MPILL ALLOWANCE @ 2500/month. I have tried to attach above mentioned letter here, but unsuccessful.

    This letter looks like a sign of Hope 🙂

  13. zeeshan says:

    This Budget totally ignored the deprived of M.Phil Allowance. No one found interested to solve the issue. Punjab Govt Employees are getting @ 5000 /month whereas we are not deserving of even 2500 per month.

  14. Quratulain says:

    Please putup case against this notification..........its totally discrimintaion while Punjab government allowed allowance to MS holders RS .5000

  15. Muhammad Imran Munir says:

    MBA 3.5 years are equivalent to MS/M.phi degree recognised by the HEC. What logic that there is not admissible to allowance 2500.00 per month. Ministry of finance is requested to please given the allowance in eqvt degree. Then next degree i.e P.hd, both students of M.phil and eqvt to MS/Mphil are admission to P.hds in same classes. I m not clear the logic of min of finance, I'm very disappointed this type of notification, Therefore it is requested that please issue new notification to both are admissible to eqvt allowance. An early and favorable action, please

  16. Shazia Nasreen says:

    Govt. should clarify that why MS degree holder is not given allowance. if it is the case than universities should stop giving MS degree. why there is discrimination. If university is issuing the degree of MS even after research it is not student's fault. this is the dilemma of Pakistan that policy makers do not bother to get complete information but rely on those who are not concerning people of the field. they blindly make policies. This notification of the govt. is a source of frustration among the people. Govt. should rewrite the notification and clearly mention the reason why an Mphil who did research of six credit hours and an MS who also did research of six credit hours are not equal. There is a need of strong protest against this notification.

  17. ahsan says:

    This is the right time to file a case against finance division pakistan, If MS is equal to MPhill then whats the point in making such discrimination, i am really upset and totally disappointed on such mad notifications, in my organisation we feel that "finance people act as if they are giving you their own money in order to show performance because there is nothing else in which they can excel except blocking money"

  18. Adil says:

    Any update regarding the case mates. If anybody could drop a message on 03465562636 or if we could communicate with each other on a watsapp group " MS students". send me ur contacts.

  19. Naseer says:

    In Punjab, MSc (Hons.) 18 years of education have won the case at Lahore High Court (Multan Bench) for the grant of Mphil Allowance @ Rs.5000/- P.M. Its all about 18 years of education whether it is a mphil, ms or msc (hons) to get the allowance. Finance Division of Federal Govt. has to collect the information from HEC then issue the orders. In the subject of any Language, universities issue mphil degree whereas ms is for sciences. Wah g wah Pakistanio?????????

    • abdul razaq khan niazi says:

  22. Nisar says:

    This is a serious issue. HEC is custodian of Degrees; If this MS degree is not equal to M,PHILL in eye of the Finance Division than universities attracting innocent students should raise issue with HEC for clarifying the Finance Division and decision making authorities in this regard.

  32. Muhammad Waheed Nasir says:

    Aoa Dear Aggrieved Ones.
    It is in response of the Finance division's notification about Admissibility of Mphil Allowance to MS or Degrees equivalent to Mphil from HEC recognized universities.
    I have also same degree which in Equivalent to Mphil according to equilance certificate provided by HEC.
    Now the issue is who the finance division is to decide either a degree is MPhil or not its the discretion of the HEC to decide the degree status.It is unfair to refuse the admissibility to Equivalent degrees so All the aggrieved Employees of federal govt are requested to unite and challenge the decision.
    All the correspondence in this regard can be made at waheed_n73@yahoo.com so we can try to get the allowance,


    • Muhammad Ashfaq says:

      Any progress/ update against Finance Div.? Plz let me know, what is your plan to put court case combinely? Need maximum strength of aggrieved employees for this. Waiting you erliest response.... Thnx

  33. Sana says:

    please take action against this notification. MS(18 years of education). Why not allowed for allowance? mery department na MS pa allowance allow kia. After this notification department said k wo recovery kerin gy. Totally wrong.

  34. Aamir Nawaz says:

    Notification issue karny walo ka b parha likha hona zrori hy janab, yh tu bus lakeer ky faqeer hain

  35. zaheer says:

    HEC must to take action against this notification as Mphil and MS degrees are authorized by HEC, therefore its HEC duty to take action.

  36. Nazia says:

    Why universities giving Ms degrees. If it is not same like M.phil. Very unjust decision.

  37. Hamza says:

    Why do not someone take up this anomaly case in Court against FG?

  38. haroon says:

    HEC should take up this matter bcoz finance division is not an authorized department to disqualify the scholars. Those who have earned MS degree I.e 18 years education are eligible for PhD but not for allowance.........

  39. Hassan Nawaz says:

    Very funny

  40. MAJID KHAN says:


  41. muazzam says:

    MS should not be introduce in this country who does not know the value of 18yrs education all students should only find Mphil degree which is only introduce by few universities. Kindly any tell that is there also any phd types or not. because after MS or Mphil we are eligible for Phd. Is MS leading to Phd is eligible for Phd Allowance or not. ???

  42. Qiaser khan says:

    MS and MSc(Hons) degree holders are admissible M.Phil allowance?
