The Secretary to the Ministry of Finance states that steps will be taken to pay the April salary of Public Sector employees before the 10th of April and the pensions on the 3rd of April.

A moratorium of three months on personal loans less than LKR one million obtained by state and private sector, non officer grade (non executive) employees from finance companies and banks regulated by the Central Banks was approved. Salary deductions of these loans will be suspended until 30 May 2020.
