Lower grade employees deprived of allowances
By Nisar Ali
Islamabad: The federal government had announced in its 2015-16 budget that a premature increment will be given to the Garde-5 employees. This decision is yet to be implemented in Gilgit-Baltistan. Acting on a notification issued by the Finance Division Islamabad, all provinces had increased the BPS-5 staff’s salaries by 1000 rupees. GB has failed to do the same.
The BSP-5 employees, complaining of deprivation, have urged Chief Minister GB Hafiz ur Rehman and and the Chief Secretary to take notice of the situation, and ensure implementation of the decision.
