Awaiting Court Order
ISLAMABAD, Sep 26: The Islamabad High Court on Wednesday directed the Finance Ministry to issue the notification with regard to increase in the special allowance of 20% on running basic pay of all the federal government employees by September 30. The court also directed the official of the ministry to submit the copy of the notification before it in next date of hearing as it was granted to the officials of the ministries and divisions. A single member bench of the IHC comprising Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui issued the directives after hearing the contempt petition filed by the federal employees of various departments, seeking the implementation of the court orders regarding raise of 20 percent in the basic salaries as being availed by the ministries’ employees.
During the course of hearing , counsel for petitioner apprised the bench that finance ministry was not implementing the court orders and notification of increase in salaries has not issued so far.
He prayed the court to direct the finance ministry to issue notification of increase in salaries in the light of the court direction.
Nadeem Arshad, an official of the ministry informed the bench that the increment in salaries would cost a huge financial burden on the public exchequer.
To this, justice remarked that every one has to implement the court orders and directed the official of ministry to submit the notification till September 30.
Nadeem argued that the federation has filed an intra court appeal against the decision and sought time dill the decision of the case.
The Judge remarked that there was no stay order issued in result of ICA,so finance ministry should implement the orders of the court in letter and spirit.
Justice Siddiqui observed that all government employees should be equally treated and discriminatory attitude would not be tolerated.
The court had ordered on June 18 for 20 percent increase in the basic pay of the federal employees and had directed the federation to grant the raise in salary with effect from 1st March 2013.
After hearing the arguments, the bench admitted the petitions and adjourned the matter for indefinite period.
