50pc incentive boost for Law Services employees

- Post Report, Kathmandu

Jan 6, 2017-

The government has decided to provide 50 percent incentive to thousands of employees in the Law Services, including those at various courts and Judical Council. Under the provision, the employees working overtime in offices will get extra allowances equivalent to 50 percent of their salaries.

Officials and staffers at the ministries and other government entities have already been receiving such incentives. The implementation of the latest decision will add around Rs350 million in extra financial burden to the state coffers. 

According to the Finance Ministry, the government has been spending more than Rs5 billion annually under the headings of incentive and other motivational allowances for employees.

Providing additional incentives have been causing a huge financial burden to the government, said a senior Finance Ministry official, adding that under pressure from civil servants trade unions ministers often 

agree to provide such 

facilities. Most of these incentives have been distributed to the civil servants on the 

basis of performance evaluation. 

The meeting also decided to forward a proposed terms of reference and a list of rights of the federation at provincial and local levels to the Economic Infrastructure Committee under the Council of Ministers. 

According to Minister for Information and Communications Surendra Karki, the Cabinet decided to declare Ganesh Bahadur Shahi, the forest guard killed on duty in Khokling, Taplejung, a martyr and to provide Rs1 million in ex-gratia support to his family.
