CTB Employees Offered Compensation

By Ashanthi Warunasuriya

Employees of the Ceylon Transport Board (CTB) have been offered compensation for voluntary retirement.

Transport Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva said that there is an excess of staff at the CTB, so the voluntary retirement scheme has been offered to the employees. He said that he met Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake last week and discussed the voluntary retirement scheme and obtained approval for the proposal.

The Minister said several people had been recruited to the CTB without following proper procedures. The CTB is facing crisis situation by having to pay salaries for excess staff. Therefore, the voluntary retirement scheme has been proposed, he said.

    Govts. introduce VRS schemes to get rid of excess staff but again recruit new staff under political influence and ruin this public institutions. This vicious circle stood be stopped by establishing a Committee under the direction of the PM to have cadre requirements approved for institutions especially to those loss making ones. Ranjith

    This has happened many times over in the entire existence of CTB thanks to poor management and political appointments. This not only lead to inefficiency, poor management and deterioration of Service quality. The country can’t afford to continue with this utter nonsense. We need a change; a change of politic culture to a real change.
