We appreciate the government’s initiative to raise salaries on a large scale, which is a positive sign. The country is facing a serious financial crisis and the debt has also risen. In this situation, it is very hard to give relief to pensioners and current employees, but they are also the ones who suffer the most from inflation and need relief. One more request, the government should adjust the house ceiling with the salary. The house ceiling is a fixed housing allowance that the government gives to its employees. It is usually based on the basic pay scale of the employees, which means it grows with the salary. However, the house ceiling does not match the actual market rate in different cities. Therefore, it should be updated according to the inflation and the living costs in different areas.
