Abstract: The available literature establishes that the incentive theory of motivation[2] has significantly influenced the desired outcomes in public sector organizations, and institutes. The achievement of the desired outcomes chiefly depends on the way incentives are being offered (e,g.; Killeen, 1985; Burgess and Ratto, 2003; Fehr et al., 2013; Fall and Roussel, 2014; Cassar and Meier, 2018; Itri et al., 2019). Believing on the outcomes of the incentive theory of motivation, the Higher Education Commission (HEC) introduced a monetary incentive-based mode of appointment against the Basic Pay Scale (BPS) to hire the teaching faculty by public sector universities in Pakistan.
