The government officials and employees are likely to receive more bonuses on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha this year.
However, it will depend on when the Eid will be held.
The Eid-ul-Azha is likely to be held on July 31 or August 1. If the Eid-ul-Azha is held on August 1, the government officials and employees will get additional amount.
If the Eid-ul-Azha falls on July 31, the government employees will receive bonus equivalent to the basic salary of June.
On the other hand, if the Eid-ul-Azha falls on August 1, they will receive bonuses equivalent to the basic pay of July. The month of July comprises 31 days. So, the government officials and employees will get an additional amount of one day.
Besides, annual five per cent increment for the government serviceholders is going to be implemented from July 1. It becomes effective annually according to the Pay Scale of 2015. So, if the Eid-ul-Azha is held on August 1, the government officials and employees will receive extra amounts as per this rate.
Meanwhile, Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General has been in great trouble as the date of Eid-ul-Azha has not yet been decided
