The Finance Ministry has issued a circular to Government institutions to cut down expenses.

The state institutions have been told to cut down expenses on water, electricity and telephone bills, curtail overseas training and not to use public funds to print diaries and calendars for next year.

In a circular, Treasury Secretary R.H.S. Samaratunga has instructed state institution heads to pay personal attention towards minimising waste and economical usage of funds of expenditure for their agencies.

This was because of “adverse pressure prevailing on the government revenue due to impediments caused to the economic activities through unexpected incidents that occurred on 21st April, 2019”.

They have been strictly instructed that any payments should not be made in contravention of Public Administration regulations and Circulars.
