They also call for a special programme for the landless.

The report said the Organization for Eelam Refugees’ Rehabilitation has prepared a proposal, covering seven stages of refugee repatriation including travel, subsistence and livelihood.

According to the NGO’s calculations, each family will have to be provided with around 3.5 million rupees.
