What is the current salary range for civil servants in Malaysia?

Determining the current salary range for Malaysian civil servants requires consideration of several factors, as it’s not just a singular range:

Grade System: 

  • Salaries are primarily based on the grade system, with 56 grades from DG (Director-General) to PA (Pegawai Awam). Each grade has a base salary range.


  • On top of the base salary, various allowances come into play, adding complexity to the overall picture.These include:
    • Fixed Allowances: Fixed monthly payments like the Fixed Civil Service Allowance and Fixed Housing Allowance.
    • Variable Allowances: Payments based on specific criteria like location, job nature, etc. (e.g., Rural Area Allowance, Critical Service Allowance).

Experience and Qualifications: 

  • Years of service and specific qualifications can affect base salary within a grade range.


  • Depending on the state or territory, additional location-based allowances might apply.

Therefore, providing a single salary range isn’t entirely accurate. However, here’s some guidance:

  • Starting salaries: For fresh graduates joining at the lowest grade (PA), the base salary starts around RM1,819 per month.
  • Senior positions: Salaries for higher grades like DG can reach RM26,734 per month (base salary only).
  • Overall range: Considering base salaries, allowances, and varying factors, the overall range could be roughly RM1,800 to RM27,000+ per month.
