Pension scheme for members of the Civil Defence Force


President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday said that a pension scheme would be introduced to the members of the Civil Defence Force.

A pension similar to the one provided to members of the three armed forces and the police would be provided to the Civil Defence Force as well, President said while unveiling a Ranaviru monument at Civil Deefence Force Headquarters in Mihinthale yesterday.

Civil Defence force played a pivotal role in the battle against terrorism by deploying in their home towns and villages, to provide security to the civilian population.

“As a result of the collective effort of the Security Forces’ personnel, everyone is living peacefully with dignity. Though we have created a peaceful atmosphere, there are certain elements, trying to ruin this peaceful situation,” the President added.
