Eastern teachers denied flood distress loans

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 08 March 2011, 13:37 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Democratic Teachers Union (SLDTU) has accused Colombo Public Administration Ministry of not disbursing distress loans to public servants affected by recent floods in east as previously announced with a circular issued by the Ministry. SLDTU President, A.P. Kamaldeen, said, according to the circular three months salary will be given as interest free loan and would be recovered in a period of ten months. But the loan has not been released to teachers even after two months.

Kamaldeen said that one third of the public servants in the eastern province are teachers.

Affected teachers had been taking their applications to Village Officers (GS/GN), Technical Officers and Divisional Secretaries to obtain this distress loan.

Kamaldeen demanded that the distress loan be released to teachers before the end of March 31.

Financial relief to public servants working in the spheres of education, health and other sectors has not been given except to workers in financial institutions in government departments he said.
