The National Service Scheme (NSS) has refuted a report suggesting that a number of national service personnel have not been paid their monthly allowances since the start of the service.
According to the NSS, it has paid in full the allowances of nearly 98 per cent of service personnel.
The statement follows a report on Tuesday, January 9, that some service personnel who have not been paid their allowances besieged the headquarters of the Scheme to demand what was due them.
This, according to the statement, was untrue and that work at the Secretariat on that day was conducted in usual manner without any record of interference.
“Management wishes to categorically state that service personnel who have duly been registered, biometrically verified, deployed and are at post would duly be paid their service allowances,” the statement added.
