Since he took charge of the country’s affairs, Prime Minister Imran Khan has been advocating austerity in the government affairs feverishly. However, advocating is not the only thing he has done in this regard.
He has launched a nationwide austerity drive, cutting down on expenses of the government departments and all. Recently, another amusing piece of information has surfaced.
The Prime Minister is earning even less than the federal ministers in his cabinet. Media outlets got hands on the premier’s salary slip according to which his income is less than those of the chief ministers of four provinces and federal ministers.
The premier receives Rs. 107,280 in lieu of basic salary. He is entitled to a Sumptuary Allowance worth of Rs. 50,000, Adhoc Relief Allowance Rs. 21,456, Adhoc Allowance 12,110, and Adhoc Relief All 10,728.
After including all the allowances, the PM’s gross salary becomes Rs. 201,574 which, after tax and other deductions, comes down to just Rs. 196,979.
