Police directed not to take action against Kithul toddy tappers

Acting IGP C.D. Wickramaratne has instructed all Police stations not to take any legal action against Kithul toddy tappers. As per the Excise (Amendment) Act No. 4 of 2018 Kithul toddy tapping does not require a permit. Therefore, he directed all OICs of Police stations not to initiate legal action against Kithul toddy tappers.

However, there have been repeated complaints that the Police are initiating legal action against Kithul toddy tappers despite the legal provisions.

Hence, the Acting IGP has officially notified all Police stations not to initiate legal action against Kithul toddy tappers in future.
