ISLAMABAD: The current model for pay and pension in the government departments is unsustainable and there is a need to rationalise the salaries, allowances, perks, etc, on the basis of performance and quality work, a senior official said on Tuesday.

Addressing a virtual meeting of the Pay and Pension Commission, Adviser to the Prime Minister on Finance and Revenue Shaukat Tarin said that the performance of the employees may be assessed on the basis of setting targets and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and simultaneously best performers may be compensated with rewards.

The adviser stressed for removal of anomalies in basic pay structure and suggested uniform basic pay structure for all the organisations.

He suggested adoption of internationally accepted practices and emphasised that there is a need to work out ranges for linking compensation with performance.

This will ensure meritocracy in the recruitment and result in improved service delivery in the public sector, he said and extended full support and cooperation to the commission.

Pay and Pension Commission chairman thanked the adviser on his keen interest and ownership of the work of Pay and Pension Commission.

He assured that the commission will do its best to come up to the expectations of the government and would present an actionable set of recommendations for the rationalisation of the pays of the public servants.

The commission is headed by Zafar Ahmed Khan and is composed of senior professionals from the public and private sectors, as well as serving federal and provincial secretaries.
