Plantations about to be Collapsed due to extra High Labour charges

Sri Lanka plantations say unable to continue to justify large losses to shareholders | Economynext: Sri Lankan plantation companies said they cannot justify large loses to shareholders and remain in business if worker labour unions do not sign a new productivity-linked wage deal agreed upon with government mediation.

The Planters’ Association of Ceylon, representing Regional Plantation Companies (RPCs), said that continuing to resist the revision of the present archaic attendance-based wage as losses increase, without any other viable alternative, is putting the industry in peril.

“At the request of the government and considering the aspirations of the workers, the RPCs provided a daily interim allowance of Rs100 to their workers for June and July 2016 despite being under significant financial pressure, by utilising loans of Rs800 million provided by state banks via the Tea Board,” a statement said.

Allegations On Violating Tender Procedures | The Sunday Leader

Allegations On Violating Tender Procedures | The Sunday Leader: The Minister of Prison Reforms Rehabilitation, Resettlement and Hindu Religious Affairs, D. M. Swaminathan, on his own decision, had allegedly selected the building located in Carlwil Place, Kollupitiya to house all its five institutions violating tender procedures.
Had the Ministry followed a transparent tender procedure in selecting the building bid to house all its institutions under a roof and followed all the provisions mentioned in the bid, it would not have been an issue for a CID case to be taken up to which the secretary to the minister R. Dullewa claims is unaware of.

Coming of age of Chandimal

The Island: Our splendid sports reporter Reemus Fernando had told us plenty about this raw talent from Ambalangoda called Dinesh Chandimal. Later a lot was heard of him as he represented Ananda College. When the selectors picked him to represent Sri Lanka Board President’s XI against touring New Zealanders at the age of 19, we rushed to the Colts Cricket ground to see how the next biggest thing in Sri Lankan cricket would fare against Tuffey, Martin, Oram and Vettori. It happened to be Chandimal’s First Class debut too.

For a player to make his First Class debut against a touring side even before he had played club cricket, gives you an indication the weight of expectations on the youngster.

He looked confident and organized and wasn’t rattled by the opposition’s verbals. Chandimal’s approach was a bold one. He was strong on the back foot cutting and pulling the seamers while against the spinners his footwork looked near perfect with some neat drives as he raced to a half-century. His 64 contained 11 boundaries. We returned to office that day convinced that a star is in the making.

Meanwhile Australia are said to be frustrated at green practice wickets that show�no resemblance to the turning decks that await them in the middle.

Central Bank of Sri Lanka, FinMin main sources of economic instability | Economynext

Central Bank of Sri Lanka, FinMin main sources of economic instability | Economynext: "My assessment is that the excesses of the Rajapaksa years had not been fundamentally corrected so far, and in some respects it had got worse," Razeen Sally, a plain-speaking international economist who now chairs Sri Lanka's Institute of Policy Studies said.

"We had, in my view, two very bad budgets last year. There has been excessive increases in public sector spending, on salary increases and new entitlements. The tax system has continued to deteriorate.

"There had been too many ad hoc measures on taxation. Business is understandably very vexed because of the high levels of unpredictability and uncertainty that continue from the last regime."
