Chairperson of the Colombo Municipal Council Rosy Senanayake says rumours circulating of land under the Colombo Municipal Council being taken over by the CMC are false.
Rosy Senanayake speaking at a media briefing in Colombo this morning said a mistake was committed on the part of the Municipal Council in publishing data on the assessment numbers of land and properties in Colombo on the CMC website.
She apologised over the incident adding that based on this, various rumours began circulating.
Senanayake said the CMC has no authority to acquire lands.
However, the Chairperson said there are around 59,000 properties that have not been registered within the Colombo municipality adding that the objective was to register such land.
