No new recruitments for public service!
The Ministry of Finance has informed the Examinations Department of Sri Lanka not to hold any examination for public service recruitment. Apart from this, it has been notified to suspend the results of the recent recruitment competitive exams.
Due to the current financial crisis, the payment of salaries of public servants has also gone into crisis and due to this, the government is engaged in an effort to reduce the number of public servants.
The Ministry of Education says that due to this decision, it has not been possible to release the results of the examination for the selection of aesthetic subjects, home economics and English teachers for public schools held last February. The education authorities say that the examination department has not yet been notified to release the results as the recruitments have to be done if the results of the relevant examination are released.
According to this year’s budget proposals, the recruitment of government employees has been suspended.
