The federal government of Pakistan has officially debunked Eid allowance rumors circulating on social media. In a statement issued on Sunday, the Ministry of Finance spokesperson confirmed that no such allowance has been announced.

A fake notification had been making rounds on social media, claiming that employees from grades 1 to 22 would receive an allowance equivalent to 15% of their basic pay for Eid-ul-Fitr. This alleged allowance was said to be applicable across all departments and divisions under the federal secretariat.

The Eid allowance rumors fake notification, dated March 29 and bearing the number F.No.14(10R-3/2021-324), also instructed departments to allocate the allowance from their budgets and was signed by a fictitious officer named Fozia Hussain. It urged strict compliance from all departments.
