The Cabinet has given its approval to purchase the passports from Epic Lanka Private Limited, the company from which they had been obtained thus far.
 
Internal Affairs Minister S. B. Navinna told our news team that accordingly action would be taken to procure one million passports from this company.
 
The company had earlier informed the government that the stock of passports was gradually decreasing, and then the Ministry had submitted a Cabinet paper last November for procuring new stocks.
 
Earlier the Ministry of Telecommunication and Digital Infrastructure that implements the Electronic Passport Project had objected to it.
 
It was then decided to appoint a committee comprising of secretaries from the three ministries to look into the matter.
 
Subsequently, the Cabinet approved the assigning printing of passports to De La Rue, the company that prints the currency notes.
 
However Internal Affairs Minister S.B. Navinna told our news team, taking into consideration the delay that might occur, yesterday the Cabinet approved procurement of passports from Epic Lanka Private Limited, the former supplier.
