New mechanism for right to information



The Ministry of Public Administration and Home Affairs requests the public to state their phone number, WhatsApp number and email address along with their contact address in order to avoid delays in obtaining information requested from gove ment institutions. 

 
The main purpose of this is to avoid possible delays in sending the requested information by post. 
 
These facts were revealed when the President's Secretary Mr. Saman Ekanayake and the secretaries of the ministries met at the President's Office today (02). 
 
The President's Secretary Mr. Saman Ekanayake informed all the secretaries of the ministries that it is the prime responsibility of all the ministries and gove ment officials to work for the convenience of the public and that it is mandatory to create a response program in all the ministries and gove ment institutions by providing an efficient service without inconveniencing anyone. 
 
Further, the public are informed to follow this step when requesting information from the Presidential Secretariat, and since 2019, the Presidential Senior Assistant Secretary (Legal) Mr. Sisira Henadhira has been acting as its Information Officer.
