Non-recipients of Rs. 2,000 allowance asked to submit appeals

The Home Affairs State Ministry informed that those who have lost their livelihoods due to the Quarantine Curfew and have not yet received the Rs. 2,000 allowance can appeal to the relevant Divisional Secretariat for the allowance. Home Affairs State Ministry Secretary N.H.M. Chithrananda said that the appeals should be made expeditiously through the Grama Niladhari Officers of the relevant areas.

Already around 50 per cent of the eligible families have received the Rs. 2,000 allowance.

The allowance is made available to the families who have lost their income due to the lockdown and do not receive any other allowance from the Government. Around 1.8 million such families have been identified and they have been paid the Rs. 2,000 allowance through the respective District Secretariats and Divisional Secretariats.
