M.L. Qureshi, Faiz Bilquees


An attempt has been made in this paper to estimate the changes
that have taken place in the real wages of government servants from
1959-60 to 1975-76. In 1972, the government servants were classified in
22 categories. For purposes of comparison, the various posts in 1959-60
were grouped into cateĀ¬gories which correspond to the 22 categories of
1972. The wages include the basic salary at the minimum of the scale,
plus allowances and other fringe benefits such as housing subsidy/house
rent, dearness, conveyance and other allowances expressed in money terms
at current prices in 1959-60, 1972 and 1975-76 as per details given in
Appendix Tables I, II and III respectively.
