President confirms land rights for Jaffna residents



President Ranil Wickremesinghe emphasized the importance of confirming land rights for the people, ensuring pathways for progress. He highlighted Sri Lanka’s unique position as the only South Asian nation offering free land rights to its citizens.

Speaking at a ceremony on May 24, where land deeds were granted to residents of the Jaffna district, the President encouraged recipients to preserve these freehold deeds from the “Heritage” program for future generations.

During the event, 1,286 freehold deeds were distributed across all 15 Divisional Secretariat divisions within the Jaffna district, with President Wickremesinghe participating symbolically in the awarding ceremony.

Additionally, under the “Urumaya” program, 13,858 freehold deeds are set to be distributed across the Mullaitivu, Kilinochchi, Vavuniya, and Mannar districts of the Northern Province.
