STAFF REPORT ISB: The federal government has increased Ph.D allowance to Rs 10,000 from Rs 7,500 per month to encourage scientists, researchers and technologists in the country.


“A total number of 60,699 researchers are working in the country with only 10,670 Ph.Ds which is not an encouraging figure so the government has increased the Ph.D allowance and announced further incentives for the scientists, researchers and technologists,” said an official from the Ministry of Science and Technology. He said that the present government had given high priority to science and technology so Presidents Medal for Technology, Research productivity and civil awards would be given to the researchers, scientists and technologists.
