A special allowance is to be given for disabled tri-forces members who are not entitled for a pension.
The special allowance is to be given from February next year, the Ministry of Defence said.
The announcement came after retired disabled tri-forces members and policemen staged a protest in Fort today and yesterday seeking the attention of the Government over their demands.
The disabled tri-forces members and policemen protested against the current pension scheme.
The Collective of Retired or Disabled Military and Police Personnel staged a similar protest in July this year urging the President to intervene in the proposed pension scheme.
The tri-forces and Police identified 20 issues facing the retired and disabled war heroes and they discussed the matter with President Maithripala Sirisena in July. (Colombo Gazette)
