Apr 09, Colombo: The government of Sri Lanka has sought parliamentary approval for supplementary allocations of Rs.5 billion to settle the expenditures for various matters.

The government yesterday presented the supplementary estimates that are made outside of 2014 Budget allocations to parliament, according to local media reports.

The supplementary allocations were requested for several matters including for the payment of Rs.206 million for the purchase of "high security protected vehicles for the use of VVIP."

The supplementary allocations have reportedly sought funds for the settlement of Rs.1.3 billion spent for the development projects in line with the 2014 Deyata Kirula exhibition; Rs.2.2 billion for the implementation of projects under the Divi Neguma programme and Rs.500 million to compensate owners for the acquisition of underutilized and underperforming assets.

The remaining funds have been sought mostly to pay for the cost incurred in purchasing vehicles for various state institutions.
