PM Shebanz Sharif Approves 150% Executive Allowance for Grade 17-22 Officers

The government on Monday notified the provision of the much-awaited 150 percent Executive Allowance for officers from Grade 17 to 22 working in the Federal Secretariat and Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Administration.However, private secretaries have been deprived of the provision of 150 percent Executive Allowance.There are around 200 private secretaries working in the higher grades who are now deprived of this additional allowance.

If there are any objections to the name of EA, it can be changed. They have demanded the government to provision additional allowance for them as well with effect from January 1, 2023.Initially, the government approved the provision of 150 percent EA for all employees of the federal secretariat but it was changed when it got notified as it was provided to only the powerful Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS) and Office Management Group.

All other officers belonging to the Economist Group, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Information & Broadcasting were deprived of this EA so they launched a protest campaign and started a pen-down strike. Finally, the government was forced to approve 150 percent EA for all BS-17 to BS-22 officers working in the federal secretariat and ICT.
