It should be noted that an important meeting will be held in the Prime Minister's House again today on the preparation of Federal Budget 2020-2021 with the finance division. In which Prime Minister Imran Khan will be briefed on budget proposals. The meeting will discuss health budget, increase in salaries of government employees, relief package, government expenditure, budget revenues, increase in foreign exchange, reduction of import duty, and food tax.

On the other hand, sources said that it is difficult to increase tax revenue during the next financial year 2020-2021... As a result, only a modest increase in the salaries and pensions of government employees is possible in the next budget with no revision in the basic pay scale. 

Similarly, government spending will be kept to a minimum during the next financial year. Similarly, we have had three budget meetings, one of which proposes a 10 percent increase in the salaries of government employees, considering one in five percent. Economic hardships caused by CoVID-19
