Sarawak civil servants to get incentive payment of 1-month salary

 | November 17, 2017

Chief Minister Abang Johari says the special incentive payment will be made this December.


KUCHING: Sarawak Chief Minister Abang Johari Tun Openg today announced that the state government for the first time will give civil servants a special incentive equivalent to one month’s basic salary or a minimum of RM2,000.

He said the special incentive payment would be made this December.

The chief minister said the state had the financial capacity to undertake this special incentive payment involving an estimated sum of RM45 million.

“I trust this special incentive payment will further motivate our civil service to continue with their excellent service delivery,” he said in his winding-up speech at the state legislative assembly sitting here today.

Abang Johari said over the past years, the Sarawak civil service had performed extremely well despite the heavier responsibility and the rapid growth in workload in terms of projects and programmes.

“This special incentive is in recognition and appreciation of the dedicated service of the state’s civil service which has contributed to the state’s development and growth, thus benefiting the people.

“It is given also in view of the commendable financial performance and healthy financial position of the state, which is attributed to the committed service, prudent spending and disciplined financial management of the civil service,” said the chief minister.
