However, many of the beneficiaries have not been officially posted to their Places of Primary Assignment.
Immediately the posting is made and the beneficiaries report to their PPAs, full engagement has been activated and the beneficiaries would be paid by the end of that month.
The Month of August is almost ending and the beneficiaries can not be paid for a month they did not work for. Hence, payment commences by the end of September 2021. An interval of 1-10 days is usually given to process the payment after the month-end, however, the Minister has promised prompt payment through the introduction of NASIMS Platform and Management.
