The Department Heads of the Rajarata University’s Medical Faculty have submitted their resignation as a protest against the decision by the Vice Chancellor to stop the retention allowance paid to university teachers, an official said yesterday.

Prof. Channa Jayasumana of the Medical Faculty told Daily Mirror there were 14 Department Heads at the university and that this was the first time that such a thing had happened in Sri Lanka.

He said the retention allowance had been stopped without any prior notice.

The Medical Faculty was inaugurated in 2006 and up to date some 1,200 medical graduates had passed out from this university. (Kelum Bandara)

    Lets get this straight. Retention allowance is above the base salary negotiated with the individuals to retain as a counter offer when there is an offer to join elsewhere. If VC decided that mean HR think the person no need to be retain. The person also has the right to join elsewhere. There is no need for a protest here.

    Retention allowance was payed to all accadamic staff members because Anuradhapura is not very attractive place for many. Its just not for a particular person. Also this was done according the Treasury directive.
