In Accounting( books) making 5M Profit to 500,000 loss is very simple. It works other way too.

If the CEB has made a profit, who try to increase the Electricity Tariff of the Consumers?

Env. ministry made profits. But the garbage problem, elephant problem, & wetland problem never solved

Any organization would show profit like this if they also get their raw material at half price (like CEB gets from Petroleum Corp at half price).
Try and get more discounts from CPC, then next year you could show more profits.

Unbelievable! How did this happen?

How can you calculate CPC losses into the CEB losses? they are two different corporations.

What is the mission of the CEB, is it to make profit or to supply electricity to the consumer at reasonable rate? Heavy profit should not be their motive, they should break even.

They earned losses even after getting half price raw materials before. This is a great start. Good stuff needs to be commended rather than finding fault in everything. If these figures are at least half correct this is a trmendous achievement!! Well done!!

GOVT SHOULD REDUCE THE MINISTERS POSITIONS UP TO FIFTEEN AND APPOINT EDUCATED,CAPABLE AND DEDICATED PEOPLE LIKE MR. CHAMPIKA THEN WE CAN ACHIEVE THE SO CALLED AASCHARYAYA/////

Supply Electricity and not to be a burden to the tax payer!
jsilva Thursday, 10 March 2011 01:43 PM
someone is hurting over CEB's achievement

This is ia great news. Only if the general public can benefit from it by a reduced electricity bill.
rohith Thursday, 10 March 2011 02:13 PM
Well manipulated. Even the environment ministry made profits after charging environment tax from mobile uses.

looks like they forgot to calculate 80% loss of Ceylon Petroleum Corporation
