For the income the majority of the Sri Lankan earn the rate is already high. Please do not increase it any more. People voted this government and expected relief not more burden. The way things are going they don’t seem to be interested in the poor but only the rich. You might get the backlash in the next election.

The Main objectives of the PUCL according to the act are to Protect in the interests of all consumers, ensure that price controlled entities acting efficiently among others. Unfortunately the Commission seems to be unaware of their basic objectives. The commissions whether its Electricity, Telecommunication or others are hell bent on burdening the consumers by increasing tariffs. This is due to the shortsightedness of our public servants whose solution for any ill is increasing prices. They never look at the entities to check and control waste, inefficiency and corruption. This may be due to the lack of knowledge of the industry in those people appointed to commissions. They are from the treasury or some government entity where their expertise is more on economics. It is time the present government correct this situation and consider the knowledge and expertise of persons appointed to the PUCL in their respective industries. PUCL should be under COPE so that they could advise the government on effective measures to reorganise the public enterprises in the best interest of the public. After all these loss making enterprises are run by public funds and any waste or corruption by its employees has to be borne by the public.
