The supply of electricity is to be streamlined. The Ceylon Electricity Board is taking the necessary initiative in this respect.
The Board has taken measures to supply electricity within two weeks for new applicants from any region in the country. Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka said the people will be able to obtain electricity connections without any difficulty.
An Opportunity has been afforded for low income families to obtain electricity under a concessionary payment scheme. Rural Electricity Projects will be extended. 85 percent of the electricity projects launched with foreign aid have been completed. The aim of the Ministry is to complete supplying electricity to all by 2012.
