“The Salary Service Bureau has been instructed to process salary payments for civil servants strictly on the basis of work attendance registers submitted by Government ministries and departments.”
“Ministries will indicate cases were personnel has been officially excused from duty to ensure the inclusion of such personnel on the payroll.”
