Aug 04, Colombo: The National Transport Commission (NTC) of Sri Lanka is to focus on uplifting the standards of restaurants and cafes along long distance bus routes.

The NTC states that most of the restaurants along the main roads have been graded as "C" level according to the Health Ministry's H 800 inspection check list for food selling outlets.

According to the NTC, these restaurants need to be upgraded to "A" or "B" grades.

NTC Quality Assurance Director Chandrasiri Weerasekara has said that most restaurants were at grade C level or below C level, which was unsatisfactory.

He has said the NTC and the Health Ministry would introduce strict regulations to uplift the standards.

The location of the restaurant, the air, space and necessary facilities of the restaurant, maintenance and cleanliness, price tagging, staff maintenance, the conditions under which the food is prepared, the quality of food, food storage, toilet maintenance, availability of water and other factors are to be examined and graded.
