Vehicle permit concession to be granted for executive grade employees in the state sector once in 10 years and it would be restricted to maximum of two permits, Prime Minister (PM) Ranil Wickramasinghe informed Parliament a short while ago.
This comes amidst trade union action launched by Sri Lanka Administrative Service Association, the GMOA and other public services.
Wickramasinghe also said that under the new proposal, a maximum of two permits will be issued per person.
The government had earlier said that the vehicle permits would be abolished. However, amidst growing criticism, the government later said that it will offer Rs one million instead of the permit to buy vehicles.
