Reports state that Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation employees will receive only their basic salary this month.
Their salary date is tomorrow (24).
It is said that each employee would forgo approx. Rs. 10,000 from their salary.
The decision to do so has been taken, on a suggestion made to the Management by the Director General (Finances) and Deputy Director General (Finances) due to staff reporting to work on a need-based roster in the past period. SLBC sources say this was as per the instructions issued by their department heads due to the Covid 19 situation in the country.
Co-Cabinet Spokesman Minister Ramesh Pathirana in a press conference recently stated that the Government does not plan to curtail the salaries of state employees.
