“We wish to remind you that in line with Government’s White paper (paragraph 3.6b) on the Guidelines for the implementation of market premium, the payment of interim market premium to existing beneficiaries should be the absolute amount calculated on the 2012 Single Spine base salary and not on the enhanced 2021 Single Spine base salary.” The letter said.
