Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob today said that the government has agreed to provide a special Hari Raya Aidilfitri aid of RM500 for civil servants Grade 56 and below.
“The government has agreed to give a special Aidilfitri aid of RM500 to all civil servants in Grade 56 and below, including those under a Contract Of Service, Contract For Service, daily part-time officers and those appointed under MySTEP, and RM250 to all government pensioners,” Ismail said in a statement issued today.
Ismail also said that government pensioners would receive an Aidilfitri aid of RM250.
The special assistance involves an allocation of RM923 million which will benefit more than two million civil servants and retirees.
The aid will be paid out on April 25, together with the April salary, said Ismail.
He added that this year’s announcement of the Aidilfitri Special Financial Assistance was made earlier so that civil servants can make early planning and preparations to celebrate Aidilfitri.
