Concerns were raised over the name board, especially at a time when similar criticism had been directed at some Chinese companies for not giving space to Tamil on their name boards.

Well informed sources told Daily Mirror that the name board of the Indian Consulate General in Jaffna had been placed 5 years ago.

Indian sources said that the need for Sinhalese to be placed on the name board was probably not seen at the time as over 90 percent of the population in Jaffna are Tamil.

However, one source admitted that it was an oversight and had to be rectified.

As a result, the name board has now been replaced to include Sinhalese. (EASWARAN RUTNAM)

    Great action. Will this be followed at every sign boards according to the language act? I am skeptical about this.

    Time has come up. Public administration and law and order ministries must informed every organisation( public/private/foreign funded etc.) regarding official language requirement and specially to public sector regarding signage. Non adherence must be back by relevant laws.

    Why not scrap all languages and go for Digital Language.

    The main idea to add a foreign language (of the native language of the country of consulate or embassy) on consulates/embassies is to serve as identification for the foreigners who come in the country for easy location. As usual our fellow always loose the plot...
