The National Secretariat for NGOs has issued circular no: 06 as per the Voluntary Social Service Organizations (Registration and Supervision) Act, No. 31 of 1980.

A previous circular, no. 04 of 20 November 2020, makes the process time-consuming and costly for most funeral aid and social services societies.

The new one, issued by the Secretariat’s director general Sanjeewa Wimalagunaratne, makes their registration efficient and cheaper.
