Najib: SBPA scheme to be scrapped

PUTRAJAYA: The Public Service New Remuneration Scheme (SBPA) has been scrapped, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced Thursday.

He said the existing Malaysian Remuneration System (SSM) would be reintroduced with improvements.

Najib said the matrix salary schedule would be improved to reflect minimum-maximum salaries with increments ranging from RM80 to RM320 for grades 1 to 54. The annual increment for Jusa grades will remain according to the SSM.

Making the announcement at a gathering with civil servants at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre, Najib said that the government had agreed for the Cost of Living Allowance (Cola) to be increased from RM200 to RM250 for the B area, and from RM100 to RM150 for the C area.

The Prime Minister also announced the setting up of a commission to execute a comprehensive study of the remuneration system for civil servants.
