All Ministries, Institutions and Government and Non-Governmental organizations that contribute to developing houses throughout the island should work in an integrated manner under a common policy.
There are several ministries, including the Ministries of Housing, Lands, Provincial Councils, Defence, Economic Development and host of other government agencies that contribute to house construction directly and indirectly.
Therefore, the Government has approved the appointment of an Inter-Ministerial Committee with the Senior Ministers of the Cabinet as permanent members. Representatives of the relevant Ministries will also get involved. This will help to carry out an integrated implementation of National housing programme under “Janasevana” National Programme. This is a proposal made by Minister Wimal Weerawansa.
