The families of missing persons who have obtained a ‘Certificate of Absence’ will be eligible to receive monthly interim allowance of Rs.6,000 from the 10th of October this year.

Meanwhile, orders will also be given to the Registrar General’s Department to issue Certificates of Absence to the families of missing persons after considering the records of the Office on Missing Persons (OMP).

These decisions were made when the Cabinet gave its approval to the joint proposals of the Finance Minister and the Minister of National Co-existence Dialogue last Tuesday (03).
