Productivity programs for bus depots

Labour and Manpower Minister Athauda Seneviratna on Monday said they have arranged to introduce Productivity Programs for bus depots owned by Sri Lanka Central Transport Board across the country with a view to boosting their income.

He said the programs have been partly tried at various depots as pilot projects.

"The daily income of Kegalle depot has increased by Rs. 200,000 after it was introduced with set economic targets by the Government," he said.

He said the productivity programs will be introduced to both public and private sector services.

The Government's policy to develop the private sector through promoting productivity programs will be different from its policy to develop the public sector.

Explaining the Government's objective behind the introduction of productivity programs, Seneviratna said the programs are aimed at achieving rapid national development and enhancing the standard of life.

Sri Lanka Central Transport Board Chairman Dhammika Hewapathirana said, they introduced set economic targets for SLCTB depots at Warakapola, Mawanella and Kegalle. These depots have shown a marked increase in their daily income after they were given set targets in keeping with the concept of productivity.

We are discussing with the Ministry of Labour and Manpower about how we should get about these Productivity programs so as to increase the efficiency of our transport institutions, he added.
