ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanaka’s Ministry of Power and Energy is looking to allocate additional quotas for state-run Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) and private buses as well as taxis, Minister Kanchana Wijesekara said.

A discussion was held Monday August 08 morning between ministry officials and representatives of 15 tax service associations and officials of the Ministry of Transport.

“It was decided to identify the requirements for each category by the National Transport Commission (NTC) with the assistance of the Provincial Councils and recommend the fuel requirements to the Ministry of Power and Energy. Once the requirements are received the ministry will look at the possibility of allocating additional quotas for those requirements on a separate QR code by next week,” the minister said in a statement.

“Until such time, [SLTB] depots will continue to fulfill requirements of private buses from the [same] 107 SLTB depots as last week and the taxis will receive the standard quota this week,” he added. (Colombo/Aug08/2022)
