Finance Minister AMA Muhith has announced formation of a permanent Pay Commission soon to revise the salaries and allowances of public servants.
In his budget speech on Thursday, he said, “Let me inform this august House, we shall constitute a Permanent Commission next year to give recommendations to the government from time to time on issues pertaining to pay structure.”
“In the next fiscal, we are going to introduce separate pay structure for Bangladesh Bank and the state owned commercial banks. Such separate pay structure may have to be fixed for other services too. The Permanent Commission will also give recommendations on these pay structures,” Muhith said.
He said the government had significantly enhanced the pay and allowances of the government employees with effect from 2009 following the recommendations of the Pay Commission.
“At that time, we said that instead of constituting a Pay Commission in a discrete manner, we may constitute a permanent Pay Commission that may recommend salary adjustment commensurate to inflation and also address the issue of salary discrepancies.”
Currently, there are some 1.3 million officials and employees in the public sector. Of them, 1.1 million hold regular jobs.
After the Awami League-led government assumed office in January 2009, it increased the salaries of government employees from July 1, 2009. The inflation rate rose by over eight percent in the last three years.
The Ministry of Finance on June 2 also issued an order for a revised pay scale of the Bangladesh Judicial Service.
