JOHOR BAHRU: The Johor government is currently reviewing the new salary rates for civil servants in the state, in line with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s salary hike announcement on May 1.

Menteri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi said these new rates would be determined based on the state government’s financial position.

“For civil servants in Johor, we aim to align with the announcement made by the prime minister. However, we need to examine this thoroughly to ensure that we are capable of implementing the proposed changes, as well as the rates and the timeline.
