Cabinet house full: Extra ministers get Rs. 100,000 for rent

All Cabinet, non-Cabinet and Deputy Ministers who do not have official residences in Colombo have been asked to find themselves accommodation for a monthly rent not exceeding Rs100,000.

The ministers have been informed by a circular that rent allowance amounting to Rs100,000 would be paid to them for their accommodation in Colombo as the existing official residences for ministers have all been given.

The Treasury circular had been issued before the recent Cabinet re-shuffle following which the number of ministers in the government has risen to more than a 100.

The rent allowances for ministers comes along with the recent increase of salaries for the President, the Prime Ministers, Ministers and MPs.
