Pay and Pension Commission of Pakistan New AnnouncementBy Mohsin Sehgal • Feb 2nd, 2010 • Category: Politics • 63 Comments
The price of everything is touching sky high. It has become very difficult for the common man to buy even food items for his family. Healthcare, education, and other expenses of daily lives have become unaffordable. There is great disbalance between the salaries and the expenditures.
For a long time, the government employes are waiting for the outcome of the Pay and Pension Commission of Pakistan. This commission has been pondering over the pay scales and pensions and the salaries of the employees. It was thought and hoped by the employees that this commission would come up with something drastic and relieving for them, but all it has done is yet another promise of pay raise.
The commission has proposed an increase of 15 to 25% in basic pay raise for the government employees and that is also in the upcoming budget. It is nothing as compared to the price hike and the worst economic conditions. Government should either lower the prices of utilities or increase the pay and pension.
