Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake told Parliament a while ago that the proposed enhanced fee of Rs. 5,000 to issue the emission certificates for vehicles in the budget would not be applicable for three-wheelers and motorbikes.
This emission testing centers have become corrupt places. They sometimes intentionally fail people and pass for bribes.

These testing companies are owned by private sector and only 10% on income paying to Government. From this huge increase, how much going to Government and how much earned by these two private companies? Is this proposal to earn money to Government or to these two Pvt Companies?

A very unreasonable increase and all for a private company, Rs.1000 to Rs.5000 - cannot understand at all. Minister of Finance over to you.
