  • The Federal Cabinet approved revised pay scales 2022 with effect from 1st July 2022.
  • In accordance with CSR-4, the Government has the direction/right of changing the rules regarding pay, allowances, leave, and pension. In case of a dispute, an officer’s claim to pay and allowances are regulated by the rules in force at the time when the officer resigns or is discharged from the service of the Government.

The summary of the above discussion is that the Government employees who retired prior to 1st July 2022 cannot avail of the benefit of revised basic pay scales 2022. The main benefit of the revised pay scale 2022 is that the pensioners will get more gratuity or commutation. The estimated increase in commutation after the revision of basic scales in 2022 is about 1.5 times.
