What was News before Budget Speech 2019-20?
These are the latest updates according to the budget speech 2019-20. Before this various news were in air about the increase of the salaries for the Govt employees. Some newspapers published that there will be 20% increase, some printed that there will be 15%, some newspapers showed that there will be 10 to 12% increase in salaries, even a few newspapers printed that there will be 7% increase. But now at the time of Budget Speech all has come out.
Demands of the Govt Employees
There were various demands of the employees since the issue of the Budget Circular Budget Announcement Date letter. These demands of the employees were reality based. Main demand was Increase in House Rent Allowance that is also not fulfilled according to this budget speech. Medical Allowance is also not according to the increased price of medicine and treatment charges in the market. Medical Allowance was also to be revised but nothing done in this regard. Other demands were equalization of pay scales for all the employees of Pakistan. That step also has not been taken in this budget.
One main demand of the clerical staff of the Federal Govt was Federal Govt Clerical Staff Upgradation according to the pay Scales of the provincial Government clerical staff. This is a very bad news for the clerical staff.
Request of the Govt Employees
It is once again requested from the Government that these above steps should be taken till the finalization of the Budget so that the employees may get their right and can live in a better way.
