State civil servants will receive the same amount of Hari Raya bonus as their federal counterparts, announced State Secretary Tan Sri Datuk Amar Morshidi Ghani.

He said they would be paid half-month salary or a minimum of RM500 while pensioners will receive a special payment of RM500 each.

The payout is scheduled to be made on Aug 9, the same day as the payment for federal officers, and would benefit some 200,000 state civil servants.
