After inquiring in to the situation, Transport and Civil Aviation Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva had given the directives to make necessary arrangements to buy a land to build an office for the CAA. If the constructions started at least one and half years ago, four floors would have been completed, said the employees while commenting about the actions of their top management.
While paying a monthly rental of Rs. 6 million, the CAA has been successful in earning profitable revenue, being able to pay the Treasury Rs. 700 million on several occasions. Despite the financial capability the top management of the CAA has not been interested in building a permanent office which would have been more economical.
