A Pay Structure Committee has been constituted by the Government and its meeting has already held on Monday 10th September 2012. The main function of this committee is to find the discrimination of pay and allowances among the Govt employees of various departments. The other task of this committee is to merge the Adhoc Allowances into new Basic Pay Scales. The next meeting of this committee is expected soon during the next weeks.
It is disclosed that there is a great discrimination of pay and allowances among the employees of various departments having the same pay scale. It is revealed that the driver of Supreme Court of Pakistan is drawing 50,000/- pay, a driver of State Bank of Pakistanis drawing 90,000/- pay while the drivers of other departments are drawing only 10,000/- pay. It is further added that the President House, Prime Minister Secretariat, Ministry of Finance, FBR, Supreme Court, NAB and Army Officials are drawing double pay and allowances as compared to other Govt Employees.
To eliminate this discrepancy the Pay Structure Committee has been constituted and good news is expected soon if the higher authorities pay attention to the recommendation of this committee.
