Comparison to MX8/9 is also not fair as total package is significantly different. MX8/9 total package is usually ~20 months whereas Grade 2/1 normally goes for 15-16 months only. Also selected positions in MX8/9 level are entitled to special bonuses on top of the normal publicize ones that can potentially add another 2-3 months on top of 20 months.
Generally speaking a NUS Director is much more lower responsibility than a ministry Director, so it is only fair the government pays the latter higher bonus. Even then we are talking about paying 250-350k p.a. in total to administrative department heads in an institute of higher learning. I think it is very generous and comparable to most private sector unless we are talking about global banks and top MNCs.
