The Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) is to introduce a standard plate with the house number on it for the City of Colombo and will provide the plates to householders and government and commercial establishments in the near future, said Colombo Mayor A. J. M. Muzammil, yesterday.

He said at a media briefing that 120,000 assessment number plates would be distributed to all homes, diplomatic missions and commercial establishments in Colombo 1 to 15.

The project according to him would be a private-public partnership in which the private sector partner, Richardson Outdoor Ltd would supply the number plates, while the CMC would provide gantries for advertising boards free of charge in return. The advertising company will use the gantries to put up advertisements and earn revenue.

The Mayor said Richardson Outdoor Ltd was chosen as a partner through a tender procedure uwhere tenders were called for from potential partners though the print media. “Richardson was chosen as theysubmitted the most favourable project proposal,” he said.

According to the plan, rectangular 6"x4" number plates will be provided to commercial establishments, 6"x6" oval ones to government buildings and diplomatic missions, 3"x4" oval ones to residences and 3"x4" rectangular ones to shops. (Yohan Perera)

    Great idea on these same number plates mention the number of bedrooms the kind on window and roofing and the safe combination as the CMC is hell bent on worthless implementations. via DM Android App

    What is the purpose of this? What pain area is CMC trying to solve - too much money in the treasury?Also, why is there a need for 4 different shapes. That is just extra costs for molds. If they were all the same size, it would be faster and cheaper.

    This is how corruption forms itself. Why are we being made to have house numbers printed by government? who decides that this is necessary

    Katie Friday, 20 November 2015 09:45 AM

    Before the house numbers, the proper garbage system should be introduced for Colombo City and its suburbs.
