Which means 50% (Half) of recommendations of Ministry of Fiinance which was 40% means actuall increase for the year 2017 will be 20% of current ceiling & remaining 20% will be included in budget 2018-19 alongwith 50% HR Allowance of initial basic of 2017 Pay Scales.... Do you agree...?????

    and a way to gather voters in coming election

  30. Muhammad. Faheem says:

    I think these rates will be revised in the Budget 2018-2019.. this is the meaning i get from the letter.. Ministry of housing will resubmit the summary before the next budget.. Dear Shumaila please share you thoughts on this.

  31. Imran Ashraf says:

    It means no increase till June 30, 2018. In short the hiring rates will be revised after almost 4 years. Hiring rates if increased 50 %, then actually Govt has increased the rates by almost 33%. By saving one year payment the Govt will announce the huge increase of 50%. This is called Accounting :).

  32. Abdul Qadir Shaikh says:
