In response to the ongoing challenges posed by significant inflation, the federal cabinet has granted its approval to the budget proposals for the upcoming fiscal year 2023-2024.

As part of these measures, the salaries of government employees will be enhanced by up to 35 per cent, based on the recommendations put forth by various stakeholders. This decision aims to alleviate the hardships faced by the less privileged segments of society.

Furthermore, the government has sanctioned a 17.5 per cent increment in pensions for the fiscal year 2023-2024. Employees falling within grades 1-16 will benefit from a salary raise of 35 per cent, whereas those in higher grades, above grade 17, will experience a 30 per cent increase in their salaries. Moreover, the government has established a minimum wage of Rs32,000.


In addition to salary adjustments, the Pay and Pension Commission has proposed a 100 per cent rise in medical and conveyance allowances for government employees, along with a 10 per cent increase in ad hoc allowances. These recommendations are being taken into careful consideration by the government.

The approval of the budget proposals reflects the government’s commitment to address the economic challenges faced by the country and provide relief to its citizens.
