Request of Employees
For the information of the employees of all departments of Pakistan want to raise salaries in budget 2020-21. They are living from hand to mouth as Government increased their salaries since a year, where they were made to satisfy only at 10%. After that time the prices of all items to buy by the employee are at its hike. They want that salary should be equal in all departments. They are facing the issues of residence, food, health and many more.
Government Already Assured
It is further added that Finance Division has already assured to increase suitable salary for Government Employees. The reality is that the Government employees are in trouble especially the lower grade employees. Hope, Government will now feel the pain of the employees and will be the support of the employees. In this way they will be able to meet the dearness.
