The Central Provincial Council, established under the Provincial Council Act No.42 of 1987 according to the 13th Amendment to the constitution of the Democratic, Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka consists of Kandy, Matale and Nuwaraeliya Districts.
Over 53, 000 officers of 29 Departments and Institutions under the five Provincial Ministries are currently employed at the Provincial Council. Our aim is to provide a people friendly service to the public through a participation enhancing approach.
Our sole expectation is to assist our country on its journey to achieve an advanced and responsible public sector and in this attempt we are continuously following the Hon. President's A Compassionate Maithri Governance, A Stable Country policy.
A method is being arranged promptly to provide prompt solutions to the problems of the public in order to ensure a people friendly public service. Therefore, all work is planned according to the Provincial Strategic Development Plan. In order to facilitate these programs, new IT Communication strategies are implemented following "A Compassionate Maithri Governance" Vision Plan and a data base is maintained including details of all provincial council officers.
The electronic accounting strategy has enabled maintaining a well organized accounting system within the provincial council. In the near future I hope to establish an electronic personal file system. Also a computer program enabling easy access to information regarding development projects in the province is in progress.
Moreover, the continuous guidance and contribution of the Governor of Central Province, Hon. Niluka Ekanayake, the Chief Minister Hon. Sarath Ekanayake, Hon Members of parliament and of Hon Ministers, for the provincial development and administrative work is highly appreciated.
