PM: Civil servants to get half-month bonus
“The government hopes the provision of this bonus and special payment can lighten the burden of civil servants and government pensioners and help them make preparations for the upcoming Aidilfitri celebration.
“This shows that the government is always concerned about the welfare of civil servants and government pensiors. The awarding of the bonus is a mark of appreciation to all civil servants,” said Najib.
Najib said the two payments involved 1.27 million civil servants and 590,000 government pensioners and entailed an estimated expenditure of RM2bil.
