The Pyithu Hluttaw has decided to discuss a proposal to motivate civil servants by acknowledging their abilities and performance, providing them with insignias, arranging excursion trips and sending them to foreign countries
under scholarship programmes.
The proposal, submitted by Dr. U Aye Min of Kayan Constituency, highlighted the low salaries and allowances of civil servants, which are not enough to meet the expenses for their basic needs.
The job burden on civil service personnel due to understaffing and poor working conditions, and the consequent low productivity, turnover and corruption indicate they need an environment that will promote their abilities and performance, said Dr. U Aye Min during the discussion in the Pyithu Hluttaw yesterday.
In support of the proposal, Daw Aye Mya Mya Myo of Kyauktan Constituency has urged the government to establish a mechanism that can prevent corruption among civil servants.
She also called on the government to adopt urgent measures to tackle corruption through reforms.
