Ministry of Information says it has saved more than KD 7 million after ending the services of 1,000 employees who were working on allowance basis. This followed the decision taken by the concerned authorities to suspend a number of technicians and engineers working in Kuwait TV on that basis, reports Aljarida daily.

According to informed sources, those who have been laid off are of different nationalities including retired citizens working in various technical specialties. Each of them was receiving bonuses of an average KD 600 per month, some even receiving almost KD 1,200. They revealed that total amount paid to the employees of the ministry on this basis was over KD 7 million per year.

The sources indicated that the saved amount represented huge financial revenue that has not been achieved by the ministry for years, adding that this amount will benefit the State Treasury and can be used to increase the rewards offered to the employees of the ministry.
