The Ministry of Public Administration has decided to temporarily absorb officers in the Management Service to the Department of Immigration and Emigration.
The Secretary to the Public Administration Ministry, M. P. K. Mayadunne, stated that the Director General of the Joint Services had already conveyed this decision to all heads of institutions on 6 July.
He added, that this measure has been undertaken following a request made to his Ministry by the Controller of the department to temporarily reduce the congestion at its offices for want of sufficient officers to cater to the current heavy demand by the public. Hence, those in the Management Service are to be absorbed into the cadre of the department for a 90-day period.
