Civil servant allowances will be transferred to Gapok – The government is currently drafting provisions regarding the wage elements of Civil Servants (PNS). This is indicated by the regulations that are being regulated by the State Civil Service Agency (BKN) through the Directorate of State Civil Apparatus.

Acting Head of the Public Relations, Legal and Cooperation Bureau of BKN, Paryono, explained that in this arrangement there will be many things that are different, especially elements of civil servant income or wages from the initial provisions.

In this provision, the government will eliminate several allowances and merge these components into just salary and two types of allowances. This means that civil servant wages will increase because these two allowance components are included.

"Later, family allowances and position allowances will be placed in the salary [basic salary/gapok]," he said.

Currently, there are many allowances that civil servants receive, namely spousal allowance, child allowance, position allowance, performance allowance, food allowance, rice allowance, and dearness allowance. These allowances will be simplified.

What was previously based on rank, class class and length of service has moved towards a wage mechanism that is based on the price of the position and the value of the position.

The position value in question is the position value obtained as a result of the position assessment which produces the position class or position level which is then referred to as rank.

The provisions for civil servant rank themselves are equally related to the provisions regarding civil servant wages which are regulated in Government Regulations (PP) 7/1977 concerning civil servant wages which have been amended by PP 15/2019.

Apart from that, this is related to other regulations such as civil servant pension guarantees, civil servant pension guarantees or savings, health insurance, and so on.

BKN makes it clear that the regulations for determining income still depend on the circumstances finance country. Therefore, additional careful efforts are needed and supported by the results of in-depth research and replication.

Regarding the dismantling of this provision, Paryono confirmed that the basic salary for civil servants would increase higher than it is now.

For example, civil servant wages are regulated in Government Regulation (PP) 15/2019 concerning Civil Employee Wage Provisions. The amount of wages for civil servants also differs according to their position group and length of work period.

For civil servant wages, currently there are four groups, namely I, II, III and IV. Meanwhile, MKG is calculated according to the working period from lowest to highest, namely 0-33 years.

Here are the details:

  1. Group I: IDR 1,560,000 to IDR 2,686,500
  2. Group II: IDR 2,022,000 to IDR 3,820,000
  3. Group III: IDR 2,579,400 to IDR 4,797,000
  4. Group IV: IDR 3,044,300 to IDR 5,901,200

However, apart from the basic salary, civil servants also receive various kinds of allowances. Starting from family allowances, official travel allowances, performance allowances, to child and husband/wife allowances.
