The main purpose of this post to get the views of the employees about Revised Pay Scales 2015 and Increase in House Rent Allowance. All the employees of the Pakistan request the Govt to ponder over the main demand of the employees. The basic demand of the employees is the Revision of Basic Pay Scales 2015 and Increase in House Rent Allowance (HRA). Let’s discuss the same in detail:
Request for Revised Pay Scales 2015
Pay Scales were revised on 1st July 2011 last time and now the period of 4 years passed and there is no revision in the pay scales. There are at this time many allowances that are not the part of the basis pay these allowances are as under:
- Adhoc Relief Allowance 2010 @ 50% of the basic pay as on 30-06-2011
- Adhoc Relief Allowance 2011 @ 15% of the basic pay as on 30-06-2011
- Adhoc Relief Allowance 2012 @ 20% of the running basic pay
- Adhoc Relief Allowance 2013 @ 10% of the running basic pay
- Adhoc Relief Allowance 2014 @ 10% of the running basic pay
It is requested that these allowances be merged into the basic pay and new Revised Pay Scales 2015 be announced. This action of the Govt will win the heart of the employees. In this way the concept of Anti-Employees Govt will turn into Friendly-Employees Govt.
History of Revised Pay Scales

Request to Increase in House Rent Allowance
Another issue of the Govt employees is the House Rent Allowance. HRA of the employees is very very less as compared to the present rents of the houses. Just imagine how an employee getting a HRA Rs. 891/- can manage a house on rent. The minimum rates of the house for rent now a days are Rs. 5000/- in a small cities. It is requested to the Govt that the House Rent Allowance be minimum fixed according to the New Pay Scales as the existing rates of the House Rent Allowance are being granted to the employees on the initial of the Pay Scales 2008.
Summary for Increase in Salaries of the Parliamentarians
There is news about the 50% increase in salaries of the Parliamentarians. According to the news the summary of the same has been approved by the Prime Minister. To maintain the equality, the PM should also towards the Govt employees to raise the salaries of the employees as increased for the parliamentarians.
Increase in the Rates of Hiring Accommodation
There is also news about the increase in hiring of the employees due to the increasing rates of the rental houses. Rents of the houses have been increased all over Pakistan. Therefore it is requested that House Rent Allowance may also be increased for all the employees of Pakistan.
Admitted Fact about the Govt
It is admitted that the Govt has been successful to control the prices of the daily usable items. The situation of uncertainty has gone now. We are not fear about the new rates of the prices of the items when we move to the market.The prices of the items are nearly the same as they were about 2 years ago. But about two years ago there was a need to be increased the salaries of the employees about 100% to meet the daily expenses of the employees. As the employees were living from hand to mouth. But there is only 20% increase in the salaries of the employees, 10% in 2013 and 10% in 2010. Due to this minor increase, the condition of the employees nearly remained the same. Now it is the need of the time that the Govt look into the matter and give the relief to the employees by revising the pay scales and increase in House Rent Allowance and other allowances.
Views of the Employees
Now it is the turn of the employees to comment here their views. Try to comment in a polite manner. Only the comments in a polite language will be approved. You can also comment if there is need for other increases in allowances.
