KUWAIT CITY, Feb 22: The Ministry of Social Affairs on Tuesday deposited the salaries of its employees only to discover later that the amounts were those of the February 2022 payroll, reports Al-Rai daily quoting sources. Sources revealed that the ministry asked the concerned banks to return the salaries they transferred, putting the banks in a difficult situation as there has been confusion on how to carry out the requested procedure.
Sources said the salaries of employees in various ministries and government agencies were deposited within one day, while the usual practice is to deposit salaries gradually within several days. Sources affirmed the ministry has coordinated with the banks to suspend the processing of salary statements sent earlier, indicating the revised salary statements were submitted on Wednesday. Sources added most of the salaries are less than the amount that the employees are supposed to receive.
