Government To Cut Civil Service Allowance For 3 Months!
On 31 May 2021, the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, announced a 3-month pay cut for all ministers and deputy ministers, channelling them to the COVID-19 disaster trust fund.
On 1 June 2021, the Chief Secretary to the Government of Malaysia issued a press statement, stating that civil service will cut up to 50% of their fixed allowance for 3 months “as a manifestation of their solidarity” with the cabinet’s pay cut.
The amount of allowance cut will vary according to the pay grade, but will be for 3 months – presumably from June to August 2021.
|JUSA A and above||50%||ITK||3 months|
|44 to 56||5%|
|29 to 41||RM 10||ITKA|
Only civil servants of pay grades 28 and below, and frontliners are exempt from “manifesting their solidarity”.
Frontliners, in this case, are defined as those who received COVID-19 allowances.
This 3 month allowance cut is expected to generate RM 30 million towards the COVID-19 Disaster Trust Fund.
