A total of 12 federal ministers and three state ministers have decided to give up their salaries and work on voluntary basis due to the worsening economic crisis in the country.

The ministers themselves proposed to Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif that they will work without pay. The Premier has approved the request and appreciated their concern for the nation.

This will be the very first time that such a large number of cabinet members will be serving without getting paid.


It has also been reported that the Members of the National Assembly (MNAs) have decided to donate one-month salary each to the earthquake victims in Turkiye and Syria.
