Jan 27, Colombo: The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka has requested electricity consumers to inform the PUCSL if any unauthorized power cuts are imposed by the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB).
The PUCSL said the complaints can be directed in writing.
The PUCSL has written to the CEB informing to ensure an uninterrupted power supply during the 2022 Advanced Level Examination.
The PUCSL Chairman Janaka Ratnayake in his letter stated, the Commission has granted the approval for all requests made by the Transmission Licensee for the scheduled power interruptions made from the 18th of February 2022 to the 25th of January 2023 under the Condition 30(10) of Electricity Transmission and Bulk Supply License No.EL/T/09-002.
However, he said the PUCSL will not approve any scheduled power interruption from the 26th of January 2023 until the 17th of February, 2023 in order to safeguard the human rights of the 331,709 candidates sitting the A/Level Examination.
However, power cuts have been reported in several parts of the country regardless of the directives issued by the PUCSL.
