How Much HRA Should be Enhanced in Budget 2023-2023?
Keeping in view the above facts Government should grant the House Rent Allowance on the initial of the revised pay Scales 2022 Pakistan. As the Government of Pakistan issued the Revised Basic Pay Scales 2022 in July 2022, the employees request that HRA should be a minimum of 30% and 45% of the initial of 2022 Pay Scales.
According to the rents of the houses and flats the HRA allownce is very very least and in other words its a joke with employees. It is a valid point and it should be 70% of rents up to 15000 thousand.
