The National Treasury advised the Commission that due to the effects of Covid-19 pandemic on the performance of the revenue and the expected slow economic recovery; the commission to consider postponing the review for the next two fiscal years until economy improves" read part of the statement.

SRC has also declared that there will be no review of basic salary structures, allowances and benefits paid in public sector in the next two financial years
