  4. I,m from national institute of education as a senior lecturer
    My service grade is AR1 -5 years and Ar2- 8 Yearars . Now the admin branch called we are not permernet officers. but we got sallery since 28 years

  5. I got 1st permit and vehicle in 2000. Now It is not working well because I imported it and it was not brand new. After that we got permits and sold them according to the circular issued by Finance Ministry. Now I want to buy a car, but no chance to buy it according to the new government policies. As senior officers we suffer from this changing policies .

  6. I am a public servant as 11 year service executive grade and 4 year service Asst Director grade. I would like to know about this scheme can be eligeble for me.
    End of this year I have to retire from my service.

  7. The ultimate beneficiary of this scheme is car permit businessmen and tax avoiding citizens, money launderers who pretend to commit themselves to yahalpalanaya. These men are integral part of election funding mechanism.

  8. Only MPs are having all the previlages. This government is taking a revenge from GVT servents by asking them to sacrify but government ministers and MPs are getting the maximum benifit including unlimited vehicle permits without wating five years, pensions, etc…. I have not seen such a bad government for ever.
    These people want to stay theri five years … that the only target.

  9. Now Government can introduce VAT. Government appears to be there to look after Government Servants and not the General Public.
