GEORGE TOWN: The government will be giving out bonus in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidi Fitri to civil servants, says Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
However, he did not specify the amount that would be given or whether all civil servants would be entitled to it.
"There is a bonus for civil servants. we will announce it later," he said when asked by reporters after the national Teachers Day celebrations held at the the Setia SPICE Arena in Bayan Lepas.
Prior to this, the Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) had expressed hope that the government would consider giving bonus to civil servants and retirees before Hari Raya Aidil Fitri.
