Review report on pay recommendations this week

Update : 03 May 2015, 06:29 PM

The secretary-level review committee on the National Pay and Service Commission’s recommendations is expected to submit its report by Thursday, official sources said.

Finance Division officials said the lowest grade salaries might see a slight increase due to shortage of fund in the upcoming budget which might allocate Tk13,000 crore for implementation of the commission’s recommendations.

“If the increase was high, it would cast a huge impact on the budget outlay. So, the increase should be little,” said an official.

The highest salary will be Tk70,000 instead of the proposed Tk1 lakh while the lowest salary will be Tk8,250 instead of the proposed Tk8,200, said a review committee member.

The pay commission’s proposals to reduce the number of grades from 20 to 16 and time scale and selection grades will be placed at a cabinet meeting for its opinion.

The advantages and disadvantages of the matter will also be discussed in the meeting.

However, the committee has reportedly gave its consent to the recommended basic salaries and the annual 5% increment, effective from the first day of next financial year.

The recommendations also include giving low-interest house loans to the government employees.
