The government has decided to suspend the purchase of vehicles powered by fossil fuels for the state sector, President Ranil Wickremesinghe said delivering the interim budget speech in the parliament today.

As per this policy, only electric-powered vehicles will be purchased for the use of the public sector in the future.

Meanwhile, the private sector will also be encouraged to use electric vehicles, the President said further.

In purchasing vehicles for the public sector, suitable categories of vehicles are decided on the basis of the efficiency and prices of the vehicles.

This proposal will be implemented step by step and will be completed by January 01, 2026, he added.
