Southern Provincial Council employees not received festival advance

Southern Provincial Council employees told the media that they have not received their Rs.10,000 festival advance for the upcoming Sinhala and Tamil New Year.

The advance is usually given with their March salaries, the employees added.

Southern Province Governor Dr. Wilie Gamage has stated that the advance would be provided between April 3 and 4.

He said that due to certain financial setbacks, the festival advance was not added to the employees’ March salaries.

A sum of Rs.350 million has been requested from the Government Treasury for this purpose, he added.
