All attention is focused on the impending budget as government workers in Peshawar anticipate salary increases amidst steep inflation rates.

The budget session for FY25, summoned by KP Governor Faisal Karim Kundi, is scheduled for May 24. Expectations are high for the government to raise salaries and pensions to offset the impact of inflation and the rising cost of living, considering the significant number of individuals dependent on these payments.

The proposed budget for the upcoming financial year stands at Rs1,754 billion, with Rs200 billion earmarked for the annual development program.

Regarding salary updates in Budget 2024-25, sources indicate a proposed increase of 10 to 15 percent for government employees in KP.

The KP finance department has forwarded budget and annual development program proposals to Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur for approval.

Additionally, he stressed the need for the federal government to consult the provincial government before imposing taxes in these regions.

The provincial finance adviser also announced positive news regarding salary increases and pensions for government employees in the new budget.

Reports suggest reductions in property tax rates for the current year and the imposition of a provincial excise duty on tobacco.
