NATIONAL SERVICE ALLOWANCES AND MATTERS ARISING
The Management of the National Service Scheme is asking national service personnel and the general public to disregard news making rounds that National Service Personnel Allowances have been increased from GH¢350.00 to GH¢430.00.
Management wishes to state that increment in National Service allowances featured prominently in the Scheme’s budget which is currently before Parliament for appropriation.
The Scheme will therefore, in due course, communicate officially to the general public and our cherished service personnel on the outcome of our engagements with Parliament over our budget and increment in personnel allowances specifically.
Management wishes to reiterate its commitment to ensuring that the utmost interest of service personnel is protected in all engagements over increment in service personnel allowances.
