Minimum Wage Raised to Rs 10000 in Pakistan - June 26, 2013

 The Federal Government has raised the minimum wage from Rs. 8,000 to Rs. 10,000 per month for unskilled workers. This decision comes in the wake of budgets presented by the Provincial Governments of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

These two provincial governments raised their respective minimum wages from Rs. 9,000 to Rs. 10,000 per month. The other two provinces, i.e., the Sindh Province and Balochistan province have decided to retain their earlier announced minimum wage of Rs. 8,000 and Rs. 9,000 respectively.

These new minimum wages, once the budget approval process is complete in June, will be applicable from July 01, 2013. The detailed minimum wage notifications would be issued later on by the provinces.
