The Central Bank yesterday said little over Rs.5.1 billion has been paid to the registered depositors of the now defunct The Finance Company PLC (TFC), from the Sri Lanka Deposit Insurance and Liquidity Support Scheme (SLDILSS).
“…19,279 depositors have obtained their compensation payments from the People’s Bank as of 12.07.2020 and Rs.5,175,336,249.68 (approximately Rs.5.175 billion) has been paid to such depositors,” the Central Bank said in a statement.
It added that the funds required for making compensation to approximately 147,000 depositors, whose eligibility has been confirmed by TFC, have already been allocated from the SLDILSS.
