The ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) hosted the e-Swabhimani Award Gala 2014 recently (5) at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel, Colombo.  It was held under the patronage of Telecommunication and Information Technology Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya and ICTA Chairman, Senior Presidential Advisor and Peradeniya University Chancellor Prof. P. W. Epasinghe.

Addressing the audience at the award ceremony, Telecommunication and Information Technology Minister Ranjith Ranjith Siyambalapitiya said: “New creations should be developed. But it is very important that we appreciate the developers.   ICTA has taken steps to select the developers  in a transparent manner from a large number of competitors  and grant them awards. The ICT literacy  that was about 4 per cent about a decade ago has now exceeded the 50 per cent mark. Recognition has much to do with improvement. This is so with the increase in the ICT literacy rate as well as in other great strides Sri Lanka has made in ICT both in Sri Lanka and in the international community”.

Instant ETF balance and claim request status information

“Today some people have forgotten the difficult conditions that prevailed during wartime. Things have changed now. What were battlefields then have now become paddy fields.   Instead of cumbersome travelling today people move about freely anywhere wielding communication tools such as phones, iPhones and i-Pads.” Presidential Secretary Lalith Weeratunga expressed these views at the launch of an online /SMS facility enabling ETF members to know their ETF balance and claim application status in Colombo recently.

The ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) and the Employees’ Trust Fund Board (ETFB) joined hands recently (31) in launching a facility  for more ICT benefits for the people. The  facility, which the two institutions also implement together, enables any ETF member to know his ETF balance or claim application status online or via SMS.
