This newly established body, operating under the President’s Office, aims to address community issues promptly through effective collaboration with relevant institutions.
President Ranil Wickremesinghe’s commitment to empowering farmers by facilitating land ownership has materialised with the government’s announcement of plans to grant freehold titles to two million families.
This significant initiative is designed to resolve longstanding concerns regarding land rights in rural areas of Sri Lanka.
The government’s proposal to distribute two million freehold land titles to farming families has generated discussions about its potential impact on rural communities and land ownership dynamics.
In alignment with President Wickremesinghe’s vision, this initiative seeks to enhance land security for farmers and foster sustainable agricultural practices.
