Sindh Govt Wants to Set Minimum Monthly Wage at Rs. 44,000

Saeed Ghani, the minister of labour and human resources for Sindh, has emphasised the requirement of a minimum monthly wage of Rs. 44,000 for employees given the country’s current inflationary situation.

The minimum wage in Sindh has already increased from Rs. 17,500 to Rs. 25,000; more adjustments are needed.

Almost 100,000 employees in the province have already gotten the Benazir Mazdoor Card, according to Ghani, out of the more than 600,000 members of the Sindh Workers’ Social Security Institution (SESSI) (BMC). 

He emphasised efforts to mediate between employers, businesspeople, and workers in order to establish a fair minimum wage agreement that would enable low-paid workers to support their families.

He continued by saying that by the start of May this year, the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) was supposed to distribute BMCs to the remaining employees.

Ghani also praised SESSI for setting up medical clinics in eight districts across the province during the disastrous floods of the previous year, where doctors provided free treatment and medication to over 27,000 people.
