SBPA Circular 2012 And Its Effects

Latest hot topic these days is about the new salary scheme for all civil servants.  I never read nor watch news but I have ears... I listen to these open discussions in the office and in public.  While those involved are happy, at the same time, a lot of grouches could be heard....

Just now I googled about it and indeed it is true, from January 1st onwards, civil servants will be getting a pay rise between 7 to 13% increment in their salary.  The circular is out, you can download the SBPA circular here.

Putting that aside... what do you think will happen next year.. While the civil servants are expecting their increment to be implemented in January, we must also prepare our hearts from being "shocked-ed" by the increase in our monthly expenses.

It is expected....  when there is increment in salary, there is also an increase in everything, especially FOOD!

So... Be prepared, be frugal, be cautious in spending unnecessarily.........*reminding myself*

  1. Yalor! Don't see why they keep increasing the salaries...not that people are going to vote for them!

    And pensioners get 2% only... The prices of things? 10% or more? Tsk! Tsk!

  2. Yes, prices of things have really shot up. It is almost a weekly affair that we hear of housewives complaining of the increasing prices of meat especially pork. The floods aren't helping the situation on the prices of veggies. And who has ever heard of the opportunistic food hawkers reducing their prices every time a situation stabilizes. So agreed with you that we need to be frugal, but then again the youths of today spend like there's no tomorrow!

  9. Pam is right! We retirees, low income workers and those with no pay increase, will suffer. Prices, once increased, will never come down. Sigh! Si Liou.....

  14. Yeah!!! A raise at Christmas!!! If it is true that prices are going up, at least your bosses will help with this raise! We call this kind of raise a "cost of living"raise.

  15. I think it's other way round. The increase is to capture ur vote in the coming elections.

  16. The Exit Policy is an interesting feature added to the scheme. If LNPT mark is less than 70% and no more room for career advancement, one will be forced to retire. I believe it is part of the process of reducing the kumpulan sokongan (will be re-branded as kumpulan operasi next year)
