Payment anomalies of over half a million pensioners would be removed from July 1, the Finance Ministry said today.

The revised pension would be implemented effective from next month under a proposal made by Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera in his Budget 2019, the Ministry said.

“Accordingly, over 500,000 public servants who retired before December 31, 2015, will be benefited by the removal of this anomaly.

“The monthly salary of the public servants who retired before 31.12.2015 would be increased by minimum of Rs.2, 800 and the maximum of Rs.20,000,” the Ministry said in the statement.

This salary anomaly was created as a result of those who retired before December 31, 2015 and others who retired thereafter, were considered under two different circulars.

Pensions were paid to the public servants who retired before December 31, 2015 under circular 05/2015 and their counterparts who retired thereafter were paid pensions under circular 03/2016. Accordingly, the salary of a retired KKS grade I who retired before 31.12.2015 has been increased by Rs.2,800.

The salary of a retired management assistant grade I has been increased by Rs.5,200 under the proposed new pension scheme. Pension of teacher in grade one service I, would be increased by Rs.9,200 and the salary of a retired a nursing officer would be increased by Rs.9,200.

The salary of a retired police sergeant would be increased by Rs.4,200. A retired senior executive officer will get an increase by Rs.16,000 and the salary of a ministry secretary, who retired before 31.12.2015, would be increased by Rs.20,000.

An interim allowance of Rs.3,500, paid to the pensioners who retired under the circular 05/2015 until this new salary anomaly was removed, will be included to the new salary structure. Further, the cost of living allowance of Rs.3,525 paid at present would be continued to be paid to all pensioners, the Finance Ministry said.
