The Cabinet has approved to use the name “Kompanna Vidiya” Grama Niladhari Division under the Colombo Divisional Secretariat as it is.
It was earlier announced as “ஸ்லேவ்ஐலன்ட்” in Tamil and “Slave Island” in English, and it was suggested that the name of the GN Division should be called “Kompanna Veediya” in all the languages. This was approved by the Cabinet.
Accordingly, the proposal submitted by Public Administration, Home Affairs, Provincial Councils and Local Government Minister – Dinesh Gunawardena to issue a new Gazette Notification amending the related Extraordinary Gazette No. 743/5 dated 01.12.1992 has been approved by the Cabinet.
