Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that the Central Bank staff transfers that had taken place are on disciplinary grounds.
“They need to be disciplined,” he said, and added that the staff concerned could not be let off the hook with minute disciplinary action.
Mirror Business reported yesterday that over 100 officials from below senior management levels to minor officials were transferred from their positions.
The transfers were enforced without any prior notice, as the officers were notified of their new responsibilities only Wednesday morning.
Prior to that, over 15 senior Central Bank officials were transferred, again without any advance notice.
At a press briefing held at the Central Bank this Monday, Governor Mahendran maintained that these transfers are routine.
He said that this year’s rotational transfer procedure was delayed due to the elections. He noted that those officials who had completed five years in one department were eligible for transfers.(Chandeepa Wettasinghe)

Minister Ravi Karunanayake says transfers are on disciplinary grounds and Governor Mahendran maintains that these transfers are routine. Whom to believe?

Indeed, it is the need of the hour. Most of them were taking salary for nothing. Also , start evaluating their performances and their contribution.

whether on disciplinary reasons or not Ravi is talking out of order as he is not the Minister in charge of CB.

Maybe the governor does not like to face honest officers daily.

Lots of opposition to take right action. When PM is out of the country Ravi can act. I think this is how governing mechanism works.

If it was based on disciplinary grounds HR should have being involved and their after necessary action should have being taken....these buggars think all are fools...its called "PAY BACK"! Ha ha ha yahapalanaya gathering momentum.

Look like , again good governance has been started from the central Bank.

Who is Ravi K to contradict the Governer? The Central Bank does not come within his purview. The Minister concerened - RW, should ask this Cost Accountant to keep shut!

GOV OF CB HAS TAKEN THE WHIP TO HIS HAND. WE NEED THE INVESTIGATION AGAINST HIM TO START IMMEDIATELY AND IF FOUND FAULT TO DISMISS HIM, ALSO ON DISCIPLINARY GROUNDS

Good decision. Fire all these black sheeps who were appointed by Mahinda to sabotage government activities. Instead of transfer, fire these thieves

If anything is routine at the CB, then how come a scandalous governor remains to stay while everyone else is transferred?
Investor Saturday, 03 October 2015 08:01 PM
Ravi says one and CB Gov says another. Anyway Ravi is not minister in charge so why is he talking? Those who gave evidence against Arjun transferred!

Dissolve Central Bank completely, make Bank of Diaspora and, bring down vehicle prices immediately.
Yaka Mahattaya Saturday, 03 October 2015 12:28 PM
What right has Ravi K got to comment on the Central Bank transfers? He is not the Minister in charge of the Central Bank anymore.
