Transport Ministry to absorb more employees to permanent cadre

The Transport Ministry will absorb 580 employees to the permanent cadre of the Sri Lanka Transport Board. Minister Dullas Alahapperuma will hand over the appointment letters to the 580 employees tomorrow at the Shalika Hall in Narahenpita.

The Minister said over 350 SLTB buses are not being operated daily due to the shortage of employees. "Therefore the daily income amounting Rs. 1 million is lost due to this, he said.

"It is difficult to improve the SLTB bus service unless we solve the administration problems." The lack of trained and skilled workers are the major obstacles to implement the project to repair over 500 SLTB buses which have not been operated for past few years. These buses are parked at the SLTB workshops and under this project we expect to repair them by fixing new engines.
