Govt Employees Face Massive Elimination of Perks.

In a major shake-up of its benefits policies, the federal government has announced the termination of free electricity units for employees of distribution companies (DISCOs), generation companies (GENCOs), and the Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA).

This long-standing practice is being replaced with a system of monetized compensation, effective immediately.

A formal notification issued by the Power Division on Tuesday confirmed the approval of this change by the federal cabinet. This policy shift applies to all active employees in Grade-17 and above, who will now be responsible for paying their electricity bills directly to their respective DISCOs.

As a replacement for free units, the government will now compensate these employees with a monthly allowance based on their previously allocated unit entitlement.
