‘Don’t use state vehicles for non-essential travel’

The Secretary to the Ministry of Public Services, Provincial Councils and Local Government JJ Rathnasiri has issued a special circular to the heads of state institutions instructing them to refrain from using state vehicles for non-essential travel.

The circular also issued directives not to use fuel for non-essential travel.

The Secretary also instructed the heads of institutions to limit inviting officials who use state vehicles for special conferences and discussions scheduled to be held in Colombo.

These measures are aimed at reducing fuel consumption and fuel costs.

Meanwhile, the Ministry said such events and discussions will be held via Zoom in future, instead of summoning government officials for meetings in Colombo.
