GN Divisions Demarcation in progress
Activities relating to demarcation of Grama Niladari Divisions are reported to be progressing smoothly. The Committee which has undertaken this task has called for proposals in this regard. The Ministry of Public Administration and Home Affairs has instructed relevant District Secretaries to handover their suggestions and proposals to the 13 member committee before next month.
There have been disparities in the demarcation process in the past. In order to avoid such disparities it has been decided to allocate giving consideration to population density on the basis of 500 rural family units, 1000 semi urban family units, and 1500 urban family units for each Grama Niladhari Division. Accordingly there will be 14022 Grama Niladhari Divisions throughout the country.
