Rs. 53 m of pensioners’ payments returned!

More than Rs. 53.3 million of payments due to 1,463 pensioners since 2010 have not been deposited in their bank accounts, but had
been returned to the Pensions Department, according to COPA chairman Lasantha Alagiyawanne.

The committee makes the revelation in its fourth report.

It attributes this to shortcoming in the inter-bank payment system.
