The Ministry of Local Government and Provincial Councils says the final demarcation report has been handed over to the State Printing Cooperation.

Speaking to NewsRadio Secretary of the Ministry Kamal Padmasiri said the State Printer will make an official statement on the gazette once printed.

The printing of the gazette was delayed due to several technical errors in the demarcation report.
