Govt Employees to Get April’s Salaries and Pensions Before EID

The federal administration on Wednesday agreed to pay salaries for the current month to the staff of public sector ministries before Eid ul Fitr, a religious holiday that is observed all over the world, to relieve the inflation-weary populace. The announcement follows discussions between Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

The decision was made as Pakistanis struggled with historically high inflation, which compelled others to forgo essential edibles. The country also has difficulty obtaining outside financing, and default is a growing concern.

Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb confirmed the development by announcing that the administration has also decided to release monthly pensions before the festival.

Dar then gave Hamed Yaqoob Sheikh, the finance secretary, the order to make the necessary arrangements. Before Eid ul Fitr, the Government of Sindh declared that Muslim government employees would receive their salaries early.

A statement from the finance department stated that “all Muslim workers and pensioners of the Provincial Government of Sindh (including work-charged and contingency paid establishment) shall be paid in advance full salary and allowances/full pension for April.”

The announcement also noted that Eid is anticipated to fall on either April 21 or April 22 and that salaries and pensions will be released on April 17 rather than May 2.

The decision is evidence of the Pakistani government’s dedication to ensuring the welfare of its population, which has always come before the welfare of its workers. To prevent upsetting employees, the government has encouraged all agencies to make payments promptly and without any delays.

This move is expected to boost the morale of government employees and will go a long way in promoting a positive work culture in the country. The government’s choice to put employee welfare first will set a good example for other businesses.
