The Pay and Services Commission will submit its report to the finance ministry tomorrow (Sunday), recommending a new salary structure for the government employees.
Official sources said former Bangladesh Bank (BB) governor Dr Mohammad Farashuddin, who led the 17-member Commission, will hand over the report to Finance Minister AMA Muhith at the finance ministry at 9 in the morning.
Only after six months of the December 2008 general election, the present government under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina implemented a significant pay hike for the government employees in July 2009 as per the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission, constituted in 2007 by the than caretaker government.
Earlier, the finance minister told journalists that it would not take much time to implement the realistic recommendations of the Commission. The minister also indicated that the new pay structure would be implemented from July 1, 2015, the beginning of the next 2015-16 financial year (FY-15).
The current 17-member Commission was formed in November, 2013.
