Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said the government will execute the new pay scale for public servants soon.
"Another pay scale was supposed to be executed from this month. By the grace of Allah, it’s almost ready and we’ll do it," she said in her introductory speech at a views-exchange meeting with senior officials of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO).
PM's Principal Secretary Md Abul Kalam Azad moderated the meeting while advisers to the Prime Minister and heads and senior officials of PMO- affiliated organisations were present on the occasion.
Earlier, Sheikh Hasina said, her government gave pay scale for public servants in 2009. "The salary and allowance hike for the government staff in that pay scale were not nominal…it was a handsome one," she said.
