Civil servant raises under review + FY2019-2020 budget report approved

A draft law stipulating an increase in civil servants’ basic salaries as of the next fiscal year is now with a joint parliamentary panel bringing together the House Manpower Committee and the House Planning and Budgeting Committee, Youm7 reports. The bill received cabinet approval earlier this month, stipulating a 13% increase in the basic salaries of civil servants not covered by the Civil Service Act, as well as a EGP 75 minimum increase to the monthly gross salaries of civil servants whose employment is covered by the act. The law would also increase monthly bonuses for state officials by a minimum of EGP 175 and a maximum of EGP 400.

Amendments to a law governing rail travel were also submitted to a joint transport and legislative affairs committee. The details of the amendments were not publicly available. The original law imposes penalties on individuals who damage railways, as well as those who flout basic rules such as sitting somewhere other than the coach they paid for.
