Pakistan Army pays its employees as per the scale they’re serving in. Pay as per Pakistan Army salary structure might be slightly different due to several allowances difference, but is generally the same.

This article is incomplete and being updated regularly. You’re also welcome to provide info and corrections where required via comments. Thanks.

Also note, that the pay tends to increase based on the years of service too, not just the rank. So it’s hard to pin point and exactly define the salary of each rank exactly, as the part of years of service and various courses and services being done by that person add up to the pay too.

Allowances in Pakistan Army

There are various allowances for various setups and postings in Pakistan Army. Such as.

SSG allowance

Pak Army SSG salary is higher than the regular army.

E.g. officers in SSG receive almost 10,000 pkr more than regular army officers.

Doctors Non-Practicing Allowance

Doctors in Pakistan Army receive almost 4000 pkr as non-practicing allowance (NPA), as they’re not allowed to do private practice.

Private practice is allowed to only selected specialists, at specific CMH only.

Internal Security Allowance

Internal Security allowance (IS allowance) is applicable when Army has to do the duties which are not originally their tasks.

E.g. if police or civil service fails in some region of Pakistan and Army is called to help police or keep law and order in that area, then those army officers and soldiers receive an internal security allowance.

Another example is the event when civil doctors stopped working in civil hospital in a city of Pakistan. Army doctors were assigned to work in that hospital in place of the civil doctors. As this wasn’t their original job and work load to carry, they get an allowance for that.

Allowance for Army officers is almost 600 pkr per day (Is double in initial 20 days, i.e. 1200 pkr).
