Department of Public Enterprises has issued Office Memorandum on 3-8-2017 (just now uploaded in their website) based on Cabinet decision on implementation of report of Third Pay Revision Committee.

There is a dangerous clause in the OM;
“No fitment or any other benefit of pay revision will be implemented in the CPSEs where the additional financial impact of the revised pay package is more than 40% of the average PBT (Profit Before Tax) of the last 3 financial years.”
A more dangerous clause in the OM is that “if the profitability of a CPSE falls in such a way that the earlier revision now entails impact of more than 20% of average PBT of last 3 years, then PRP/Allowances will have to be reduced to bring down impact…”
