Circular recognizing HNDA as an alternate qualification for Commerce Degree to be issued next week
The Ministry of Public Administration stated that they would release a circular next week recognizing the HND in Accountancy as an alternate qualification for the Commerce Degree.
Secretary to the Ministry J Dadallage stated that the circular has been prepared by now.
HNDA Students staged a protest on the 29th of last month demanding to equalize the two qualifications, which ended with Police having to use tear gas and water cannons.
However Secretary to the Ministry of Public Administration stated that they could only request to consider HNDA as an alternate qualification and it cannot be equalized with a Commerce Degree.
