SL High Commission in New Delhi felicitates long-serving local staff


The High Commission of Sri Lanka in New Delhi recently felicitated seven members of its local staff who have completed twenty-four years of service.

Sri Lanka's High Commissioner to India Milinda Moragoda presented mementos to these staff members recognising their long service, at a simple ceremony held at the High Commission on 18th instant.

The High Commissioner, with the support of the Sri Lankan private sector, has made arrangements for these long-serving seven staff members and their spouses/family members to undertake a visit to Sri Lanka with a five-night stay.

High Commissioner Moragoda and Mrs. Jennifer Moragoda also handed over the air tickets to them at the felicitation ceremony.

This was the third consecutive time that the High Commission felicitated its long-serving staff members. In 2021, five staff-members who had served more than thirty years were felicitated while in 2022, an equal number of employees who had completed twenty-five years of service were felicitated. Similar visits to Sri Lanka were arranged for them and their spouses/ family members as well.

With the Sri Lanka visit of this group, the High Commission has been able to arrange such visits to all its local employees who have served more than twenty-four years, prior to the forthcoming final departure of High Commissioner Moragoda completing his tenure in India.
