    An important point has been raised by Farid Khan about recently retired federal government servants. In addition, the government shall also form a dedicated Anomalies Committee on Pension; of which there is a definite need.

    An anomaly created after issue of Pay & Pension Policy 2001 affected approx 200,000 old pensioners remains unresolved. It pertained to changing the formula for pension increments from Gross to Net pension and applying it retrospectively on pensioners retired before 1-12-2001 while the new policy applied only to new pensioners. After many favourable court decisions since then, these old pensioners were hoping that this outstanding anomaly will be resolved.

    Shall a case of the old pensioners affected by pay & Pension Policy 2001 be forwarded to the newly formed Anomalies Committee?

  2. Assalamualaikum,
    My question is that all these revisions in pay scales by the federal government are for the civil employees only or for the military personnel as well?

  3. Dear Sir,
    Assalamo Alaikum,
    I have studied the history of salary revision of federal government employees in Pakistan available on your website. I appreciate your efforts because it is a valued document. would like to ask the following question
    1. ” Is the government of Pakistan bound to revise the basic pay scales of federal government employees or it is discretionary?
    2. After how much period of time it is necessary to revise the pay of federal government employees?

    The last pay scales were revised in 2017 and it was the responsibility of the government of Pakistan to revise pay scales, however, the previous government did not revise pay scales and as a result, many federal governments retired from government service and were deprived of such benefits for which they were waiting since a long.

    My question is why the poor government employees suffer due to the delay in the revision of pay scales?

    Is it possible for government employees who retired from government service during the period when the revision of the pay scale was due but due to deliberate delay in decision making by the previous government could not get their right to submit any legal petition to the authorized forum for relief?
    The government has announced many steps for relief to the people of Pakistan then why not we request the Prime Minister of Pakistan to announce relief for those federal government who recently retired from government service and could not get the benefit of revision of scales due to delay of such revision by the previous government. I think there is the possibility of sympathy from the Prime minister of Pakistan.
    In this regard please guide me and also tell me the estimated numbers of federal government employees who retired from government service from 2020 to 30th June 2022.

    1. It depends on the Government to revise the pay scales. Generally, it should be done in three years. in 1994, the Government granted relief to the employees who retired one year before the introduction of the 1994 pay scales. Government can do this relief too.

        Farid Ahmad Khan

          1. Will all the adhoc allowances be merged in Basic pay?
            Because in Pay Revision notification there is ambiguity that all the adhoc allowances are cease at exist and admissible at following rates. So kindly clarify these points please
