All ministries & state institutions to be at govt. buildings Featured

The Ministry of Public Administration, Home Affairs, Provincial Councils and Local Government has directed all ministries and state institutions currently housed in private buildings to shift to government owned buildings.

The Ministry of Public Administration, Home Affairs, Provincial Councils and Local Government Secretary Siripala Hettiarachchi said the government has to incur a huge expense to maintain state institutions housed in private premises.

He noted that several ministries and their branches are being housed at private premises and information is currently being gathered regarding such offices.

However, he said that as the period of agreement of some of the private premises where government institutions are housed has not reached its due period, these premises will have to be utilised until the lease periods have ended.
