Finance Ministry replies

The following are excerpts of a recent letter sent by the Finance Ministry to Mr. T. B. M. Ekanayake in response to his letter, ‘Pensions: Mr. Chokcy please respond.’

"The Department of Pensions does not come under the purview of the Ministry of Finance. It is under the purview of the Ministry of Public Administration, Management and Reforms, in terms of Gazette Notification dated 20.12.2001.

I shall be grateful, if you will refer your complaint to that Ministry, under whom the subject has been vested since December 20, 2001.

However, I am copying my letter to the Secretary, Ministry of Public Administration, Management and Reforms, along with a photocopy of the newspaper report.
N. Pathmanathan
Deputy Secretary to the Treasury".
