The maximum limit for salaries should not exceed KD 5,000.



Official sources from Parliament’s Budget and Final Account Committee affirmed the importance of determining a maximum limit for salaries in the public sector through either a strategic alternative or decisions by the Civil Service Commission.The maximum limit should not exceed KD 5,000.They stressed that the maximum salary including the allowances for participating in committees and board of directors as well as privileges should not exceed KD 5,000 per month in order to avoid any big problem from occurring in the future and to narrow the gap between salaries.The sources said, “If a maximum limit for salaries is enforced, it will not be implemented retroactively. It will be applicable only to the newly appointed employees”. -A.T.
