Gazette issued declaring Postal services as essential



An extraordinary gazette notification has been issued by President Ranil Wickremesinghe declaring the Postal Service as an essential service.

The gazette said the postal services are essential to the life of the community and therefore, it will be declared an essential public service since it can be impeded or interrupted in future. 

The gazette has been issued against the backdrop of several trade unions preparing to launch a massive trade union action tomorrow (15) in protest against the government’s tax policies.
