Around 170 pensioners have been affected by this anomaly who had retired under circular 44/90.
It is stated that this situation had arisen due to the authorities not properly studying the provisions of the State Administration circular 44/90 and subjecting these pensioners to an arbitrary percentage chart.
According to the association Secretary T. Lakshman Pieris, the President had been notified of this situation.
Accordingly, the 80% salary percentage had been reduced to 45%, the 90% salary percentage to 75% through circular number 6/2004.
Since January 2004, several Pensions Directors had agreed to rectify this anomaly, but so far Cabinet approval has not been granted for this purpose, he said.
However, based on a letter published in a newspaper on December 17, 2017, the President had said during a public rally in Matale that he would resolve this matter in a week.
