Finance division is directed to state that the flood caused by monsoon rains since mid-June 2022 have caused significant human and livestock casualties as well as wide spread damage to private homes and public infrastructure. Damage to infrastructure has worsened the humanitarian situation. For collective national effort to meet the challenge of providing relief and rehabilitation to the affected population, Finance Division created a Fund “PRIME MINISTER’S FLOOD RELIEF FUND 2022”. It further proposed deduction of salary (Gross Pay & Allowances before any deduction) from government employees for approval of the Federal Cabinet. The Cabinet considered the proposal and approved the deduction as under:-

i. Two days salary of the officers/Officials working in the Ministries/Division / Department/ Authorities/ Corporations/ Companies/ Financial Insitutions/ Commission etc working under the Federal Government.

  • Further, Ministries/Divisions are instructed to approach State run Organizations under them, such as Banks, Financial Institutions, Regulatory Authorities, Telecom Companies, Insurance Companies and other similar Organizations for contributions.

    چونکہ سرکاری ملازمین کی کمائی ہوئی تنخواہ نجی ملکیت ہے، اس لیے مذکورہ کٹوتی اختیاری/رضاکارانہ نوعیت کی ہوگی اور جو کوئی حصہ ڈالنے کے لیے تیار نہیں ہے وہ سرکلر کی تاریخ سے پندرہ دن کے اندر اے جی پی آر، اسلام آباد/ متعلقہ پری آڈٹ کو مطلع کرسکتا ہے۔

  • The amount of contribution shall not be included in the emoluments of the officers/officials concerned for calculation of income tax and deduction of the recovery of the House Rent Charges.
  • All proceeds received in the name of the Fund will be credited to the public accounts of the Federal Government under following head of account:
