The Annual Budget of Punjab province, the Government will announce on 14-06-2021 and there are chances that a reasonable salary will increase in Budget 2021-22 Punjab Govt. Federal Government has already announced the budget on 11th June 2021 and as per Budget 2021-22 Speech Federal, there is a 10% increase in pay of the employees.
Budget 2021-22 Punjab Govt and Salaries of Employees (Expected)
As the Federal Government employees of specific departments are already getting DRA 2021 @ 25% on the running basic pay. The Federal Govt has also announced 10% Adhoc Relief Allowance 2021 @ 10% on running Basic Pay. Hence the total 35% salaries of the Federal Government employees will get with effect from 1st July 2021 (25% already getting).
Punjab Government has already approved 25% Special Allowance with effect from 1st June 2021. However, the employees have not yet received this allowance. This allowance, contrary to Federal Government, is on the initial basic pay. For the new entrants into Govt service, this not matters on initial or running, as the employee is getting same initial and running basic pay. It matters a lot for the employees who have more service. The more the service, the more the employee will be affected by this DRA.
As Federal Government has announced the Adhoc Relief Allowance 2021 @ 10% on running basic pay, so there are many chances, that Punjab Government will also announce the same Adhoc Allowance @ 10% for Punjab Government employees. Punjab Govt can also announce the Integrated Allowance @ 900/- per month to Class IV employees instead of 450/- PM. Hence Ardali Allowance, the Finance Minister Punjab, can also announce Rs. 17500/- pm for the employees of BPS-20 to BPS-22.
Total Expected Increase in Punjab Govt Employees Salary in Budget 2021-2022
Keeping in view the above statements, we can say that the Punjab Govt can announce the following increase in pay:
- 10% Adhoc Relief Allowance 2021 @ 10% of running basic pay
- 25% Special Allowance on Initial Basic Pay
- Integrated Allowance Rs. 900/- PM instead of Rs. 450/- PM for the employees of BPS-01 to BPS-05
- Ardali Allowance for the employees of BPS-20 to BPS-22 @ 17500/- PM instead of 14000/- pm.
