Accordingly, five plots occupied by the Sri Lanka Army and another plot occupied by the Sri Lanka Navy are to be handed over to the people.

Of these lands, 13.033 acres of government-owned land in the North Palali area will be distributed among 75 families who were displaced by the war and are still housed in 09 camps at Point Pedro.

Further, the Town Hall building located in the liberated area will be handed over to the Valikamam North Pradeshiya Sabha.
