The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) yesterday stated that they were extending the deadline for the report on unapproved power interruptions reported on 3 February from several parts of the island, and that the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) had until 18 February to submit the report.

The Commission has reminded the CEB of the report in writing, following an initial letter on 4 February, in which PUCSL asked the CEB to submit the report, as the unapproved power interruptions were in breach of the Electricity Transmission and Bulk Supply License.

The inquiry was made following reports of two to two-and-a-half hour power outages reported from Wattala, Ja-Ela, Kandana, Kelaniya, Maharagama, Boralesgamuwa, Nugegoda, Mirihana, and Hikkaduwa.

On 6 February, PUCSL informed CEB in writing that they were to submit a report on the incident by 12 February.
