Get ready people next in line is Gas, already essential item prices are already sky rocketing, next await higher levies and taxes on phone bills, water bills, tax on water wells and streams. tax on toilets, cats and dogs tax and finally coffin tax..

"don't have earthquakes" . We can not even run an old fashioned coal power plant.
China Pataus Tuesday, 14 February 2012 07:06 AM
Sri Lanka is a small country and is not industrialized. Sri Lanka can manage with thermal power from coal and heavy diesel (not light diesel which is used today by the CEB). What is needed is proper management of the generation and distribution of electric power. The short cut is to privatize the CEB intelligently.

Well said. I second that. Fools indeed!! The country is in a chaotic state.

If salary of CEB's staff increased by another 200%, along with other benefits even other srilankan employed staff not receiving here, they can gain 500 % profit. don't bother of increasing Electricity bill, this is not your problem.

Result of Non Productive nation run by administration who does not have a clue and dictated by Unions who are worse.

we recruit Engineers with politician recommendation. they are struggling to operate a Coal power plant. you are asking a nuclear plant

shouldn't we be looking at nuclear power plants? Both India and China have fully operational plants, I'm sure they have the expertise to build us robust plants. Furthermore, our country has very few natural disasters (the tsunami was a once in a lifetime incident) - we don't have earthquakes etc hence the probability of a nuclear cascade failure is highly remote. I really think the pros outweigh the cons, we should go NUCLEAR! Obviously some lucky government type will make Billions from the sourcing of uranium but still, we need this now!

Please privatize all the govt institutions running at a loss. I'm sure there are capable persons around who can run these ventures profitably, reduce costs and start making money instead of always making the public pay for their inefficiencies.

still they gave 30% increment
Nodrog Tuesday, 14 February 2012 03:55 AM
If the Govt cuts down on unnecessary spending on tamashas, foreign trips, over-staffing, over-spending and inefficiencies at the CEB, CPC, Mihin Air etc we will not have to be in this position.
Nooracholai not operating is not our problem. Who are the people responsible and will be they held liable?? Easy to always pass the buck to the consumers but it's coming to a limit now with the soaring costs of living.

cut down the expenses & closely monitor the supply of electricity to private projects as once the project estimate is given by CEB it is got done half the price as far as officers kick backs are ensured.
China Pataus Tuesday, 14 February 2012 03:39 AM
This is the result of the country being run by non professionals. This the result of careless spending and waste of public funds. As we know, the war song can not be sung anymore. Now the miss management is exposed. We will have more problems in the future.
