Launch of Citizen Handbook soon
TISL will soon launch a Citizen Handbook outlining the services provided by Divisional Secretariats in Sri Lanka.
Titled ‘Puravesi Athpotha’ it comprises instructions in Sinhala to the public on how they could conveniently obtain services from the Secretariats. The services and relevant documents are explained in simple language in the handbook.
TISL has already design and printed the hand book.
The decision to release a handbook was the result of findings during anti- corruption programmes conducted by TISL at several divisional secretariat divisions when it became evident that the public are victims of corruption due to lack of awareness. It was revealed that if the public was educated on how services could be obtained, there wouldn’t be a place for middlemen to earn a quick buck.
The free distribution of the handbook will begin from Polpitigama and Mawathagama Divisional Secretarit Divisions in the Kurunegala district.
