SHAH ALAM, June 13: Aidilfitri for the civil servants in Selangor will surely be more meaningful when the State Government announced a two-months incentive for them.
The good news, anticipated since early Ramadan, was announced by Dato’ Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali during the Majlis Rapat Ramadan Penjawat Awam bersama Dato’ Menteri Besar Selangor at the Silver Jubilee Hall Auditorium today.
“Last year, the State Government approved a special financial aid of one-and-a-half month’s salary.
“This year, a special Aidilfitri assistance of two-month’s salary for all civil servants,” he said.
The announcement was greeted with cheers and applause from everyone present who came clad in baju melayu and baju kurung in the spirit of Syawal which is just around the corner.
The incentive will start to be given on June 21, with a total cost of RM63.3 million to 17,703 Selangor civil servants.
In the same speech, Mohamed Azmin announced that the State Government plans to pay another incentive at the end of this year, subject to departmental and employees’ performance.
“I have discussed this with the State Secretary (Dato’ Mohd Amin Ahmad Ahya).
“In this last six months, we will not only assess the performance of every officer and employee but we also expect a good joint performance from every department and agency, allowing the State Government to announce another incentive which we have never done before,” he said.
