Mr. Niel de Alwis
Secretary of Home Affairs

As newly established ministry and based on main vision, mission, objectives and activities of the Ministry, we are committed to establish a new avenue of public service which is sensitive and people oriented, by using the strategies and tactics in public service.

During the previous year, services carried out by the Ministry of Home Affairs, in streamlining the activities of the public sector is commendable. I am grateful to acknowledge that the contribution made by Registrar General Department, District Secretariats, Divisional Secretariats and Grama Niladhari Offices, in achieving the above objectives, is exceptional.

District Secretariats and Divisional Secretariats under the purview of the Ministry of Home Affairs are dedicated for a wider service to the general public. Necessary steps have also been taken to use applications of the novel information technology tools to provide a closer service to the public in a way that it would fulfill their expectations particularly in line with the needs of the 21st Century.

Using the experience we gathered along the way to good effect, in order to assure an efficient and productive public service for the general public and from January 2015, with the newly establish administrative structure by the name of “Ministry of Home Affairs”, to provide maximum contribution towards good governance and development, your cooperation as exceptional individuals of the public service is keenly expected. It is for a tomorrow where the excellence of public service is seen within the new culture of good governance.
