Increment ‘likely’ for civil servants who excel


PUTRAJAYA (Jan 22, 2013): Civil servants with excellent track records may receive good news from the government on a possible salary increment in February.
Chief Secretary to the government Datuk Seri Dr Ali Hamsa said those with performance rate of above 80% but whose salaries had become static because they had reached the maximum level will be entitled to this.
“I have asked the Public Service Department (PSD) to look into this matter. We are looking at a 2% to 5% increase but we have to discuss the financial application with the Treasury,” said Ali Hamsa after delivering his New Year message to civil servants at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre today.
He said the salary revision scheme needed approval from the government but noted the matter is being viewed positively.
Ali Hamsa said the government understands that static pay is not the answer for civil servants who perform well. He said the PSD is thoroughly checking their records and by February, it will be able to determine the number of civil servants eligible for the increment.
Last year, Cuepacs pointed out the salaries of about 20% of the 1.4 million civil servants had reached the maximum level.
