The principles underlying the provisions of allowances in the Malaysian public sector are outlined in the Cabinet Committee Report 1976 (JKK 1976), and New Remuneration System which are:

  1. Non-universal
  2. Non-regular
  3. Non-permanent
  4. Equality

The non-regular principle states the provisions of some allowances that are given in specific situations. For example:

The equality principle guarantees the fairness of the provisions of allowances. They are not limited to certain services, groups or grades, but can be also extended to qualified officers in other services. Some examples of this principle are:
