  • 4. 3. INTRODUCTION : CHILAW PLANTATION LTD (CPL)3.1. Land Reform & JEDB/SLSPCLands more than 50 acres were acquired by the Government in 1974 under the Land Reform Law No 1 of 1972to the Land Reform Commission (LRC). Coconut Lands in the Kurunegala, Chilaw and Puttalam Districts, weremanaged by the LRC and Janawasa Commission were vested to the Janatha Estates Development Board(JEDB), when JEDB was established under The State Agricultural Corporations Act 11 of 1972 by the GazetteNo 199/1M on 06 February 1976. Subsequently, in 1981, JEDB Board V was established to manage thoseCoconut Lands.Under the privatization policy of State Plantations, by then Government, twenty three (23) Regional PlantationsCompanies (RPCs) were established by Gazette No 719/15 on 18 June 1992, under Companies Act No 17 of1982, by vesting lands owned by JEDB and SLSPC.Coconut lands in Puttalam District were vested with Chilaw Plantations Ltd (CPL: Reg. N[N(PBS/CGB)122], while lands in Kurunegala and Gampaha Districts were vested with KurunegalaPlantations Ltd (KPL: Reg. N (PBS/CGB)128).3.2. Legal Status of CPL CPL as a Government Owned Company, initiallyestablished under the Company Act No 17 of 1982 by the Gazette No 719/15 on 18 June 1992(N(PBS/CGB) 122) as per the provisions of the Conversion of Public Corporations or Government Own BusinessUndertakings into Public Companies Act No 23 of 1987.Subsequently CPL was re-registered under the new Company Act No 07 of 2007 with the new RegistrationNumber as PB 703.3.3. Private Managing AgentBoth CPL and KPL were always profit making coconut companies, with high productive coconutlands in Puttalam, Kurunegala, Gampaha, and Colombo districts.But in 1992, then Government under its privatization programme, handed-over the managementof CPL to the Wayamba Plantations Pvt Ltd (WPPL) by an agreement dated 11 June 1992 and KPLmanagement was handed-over to Lake House Plantations Pvt Ltd (LHPPL), on a ‘Profit SharingBasis for Management’.3.4. CPL WPPL ‘Private’ Management From 11 June 1992 up to 31 May 2008 CPL (08 Feb 2011) Page 4
  • 5. 3.4a. CPL Board: Prior To 31 May 2008 (Before Govt Take -Back Management) Chairman of CPL Board was the Nominee of the Secretary of Ministry of Plantations. Chairman (2002-‘08) : Mr Y.G. Wijeratne Additional Secretary, Ministry of Plantation Industries Managing Director : Mr W.L. Bogtstra Managing Director ( Wayamba Plantation Pvt Ltd)3.4b. Private Managing Agent (WPPL): 1) Mr S.A. De Silva Chairman - WPPL 2) Mr W.L. Bogtstra Managing Director - WPPL 3) Members (‘Family & Friends’)3.4c. CPL BOARD: Only attended to ‘provide’ initial approvals to the ‘Budgets’, Capital Work, Investments & Land Release/Sale Matters.3.4d. Private Managing Agent (WPPL) Authorized To Attend : 1) All Recurrent Expenditure and management of CPL estates, assets, etc. 2) Staff Appointments & Termination 3) WPPL Managing Agent Fee was Based on ‘40%’ PROFIT Share Earned During the period of WPPL Private Managing Agent 1) No Investment on fertilizer, New or Under Plantation 2) No Building Maintenance, No Fences 3) No Machinery Vehicle Investment 4) Many Court Cases, Pay Lawyers Fees, BUT Later High Compensation 5) Short Term Profit Making 6) Spent Money on ‘Socio-Political’ Authorities to Keep The Private Mgt.Hence 1) WPPL Not Invested Single Rupee. ONLY Managed as Coconut was/is Always Profitable !!! 2) WPPL Management Expenditure Also from CPL Budget.. 3) Without Investment, WPPL GOT Rs 118 Millions as ‘Management Fee’ from 1992 to 2008 4) Further, WPPL ‘received’ Rs 124 Mn as ‘Compensation’ for early termination of Management Agreement to avoid ‘tactical’ legal delays by WPPL against the Govt take-back of management. 5) WPPL utilized CPL funds for High Legal Fees, Even ‘Against’ the Govt during legal proceedings to ‘avoid/delay’ the take-back of the Management !!! 6) WPPL Mgt Fee 40% up to Profit Rs 16 Mn, 2.5% Between Rs 16-80 Mn, 20% Over Rs 80 Mn3.4e. ‘Deficiencies’ of WPPL Private Management:During Private Management, as the Management Fees were based on ‘Profit Share’, WPPL‘Purposely Neglected Essential’ Medium-Long term Development such as : 1. Few Under or New Plantings 2. Less/No Scientific use of fertilizer 3. Poor management of Fences, Buildings, Roads, etc. 4. Poor Public Relations 5. Poor Staff Remunerations & Welfare 6. Legal issues, Staff Dismissals/Unrest,..3.4f. ‘Efficiencies’ of WPPL Private Management: CPL (08 Feb 2011) Page 5
  • 6. Some positive aspects of Private Management were the emphasis to increase profit as Management Fee was onprofit level, minimum number of staff level, high staff discipline, minimum or no socio-political interferences tomanagement, safe guard of lands/assets without ‘giving’ to private individuals and even not releasing to Govtinfra-structural development programmes, etc..3.5. ‘Delaying’ Legal Tactics by Private Managing AgentsHowever, since 1994 as a policy, subsequent Governments decided NOT to privatize the twoCoconut Plantation Companies due Strategic Importance of Coconut as a Food Crop, importance oflands in highly populated districts, lands for public infrastructure developments, etc., and initiatedsteps to terminate Management Agreements and take-back the management to theGovernment.But Private Managing Agents (WPPL and LHPPL) were able to continue their management byresorting to delaying ‘tactics’ such as arbitration/legal/court injunction process for long delays, lackof exit clauses in agreements, facilitations by ‘interested’ authorities, etc..However, after continued honest and dedicated strategic efforts of few, the Government was ableto take-over the management of KPL from private LHPPL on 01 June 2005.But the Private Managing Agent WPPL, ‘tactically’ continued the management of CPL by resorting to longdelaying legal/arbitration process and ‘lobbying’ against take-back.3.6. SEMA Strategic Intervention Private Management Take-back to GovtAdhering to the ‘Mahinda Chintanaya’ SEMA was established under Article 33 of the Constitution byHE The President on 24 April 2006, ‘to manage twenty selected State Owned Strategic Enterprises(SOSEs)SOSEs, including seven state plantations, as commercially viable autonomous enterprises,without a burden to the Treasury, whilst being mindful of the expectations of the general public’,utilizing Our five inherent strengths of ‘Naval, Aviation, Commercial, Energy, and Knowledge’ forOur Motherland Sri Lanka to be ‘The Emerging Wonder of Asia’.With the establishment of the SEMA under the President’s Office, SEMA Directorate noted that theWPPL ‘tactic’ of keeping Palugaswewa and best productive/profitable land with WPPL and releasing lowproductive and profitable dry zone coconut estates to the Government management under CPL.Hence SEMA quickly intervened the on-going negotiations, since 10 April 2007, with a clear strategicemphasis for early termination of Management Agreement, considering the commercial benefits to Govt-CPLand related socio-economic beneficial development programmes, to avoid further delays in legal/arbitration.3.7. Successful Take-back of Management Again To Government CPL (08 Feb 2011) Page 6
  • 7. SEMA with the consent of HE The President was successfully negotiated and the recommendations wereapproved by the Cabinet of Ministers on 27 July 2007 for early Termination of the ManagementAgreement with the WPPL from the savings of the CPL, by a compensation package Rs 124 Mn to WPPL,from the savings of the CPL, as per Memorandum of Settlement (MOS) approved by the Attorney General,SEMA, Ministry, and the CPL.Finally WPPL conceded and handed-over the management back to the Government on 31 May2008 and the Board of CPL, appointed by the Government (Secretary of the Treasury being theowner of the Shares of the Company-CPL) is managing the company since 01 June 2008, after16 long years of Private Management under the WPPL with ‘delaying legal tactics’.3.8.

  • 8. 3.10. New MinistriesTo strengthen the management programmes with transparency, competitiveness and quick commercialdecision making process SEMA was established under Article 33 of the Constitution by HE ThePresident on 24 April 2006 and subsequently on 29 January 2007 five state plantations (JEDB, SLSPC, EPL,KPL, and CPL) were vested under a new Ministry of Public Estate Management & Development (MPEMD).Considering the successes and achievements, with the election of the new Government in May 2010, a newMinistry of State Resources & Enterprise Development (M SRED) was established by expanding thenumber of enterprises to twenty six (26), with the inclusion of six State Plantations (JEDB, SLSPC, EPL, KPL,CPL, and SL CC), as per the ‘Mahinda Chintanaya 2005 & Vision for the Future 2010’ .With the revision of Ministries in Nov 2010, HE The President established the new Ministry ofCoconut Development and Janatha Estates Development (MCDJED) and vested the CPL and KPLtogether with the other main three coconut organizations: Coconut Research Institute (CRI),Coconut Cultivation Board (CCB), and Coconut Development Authority (CDA) considering theAgricultural-Social-Economical-Environmental-Political importance of the Coconut Industry in Sri Lanka.4. Development under Govt Management since 31 May 2008Since June 2008, CPL Management with the assistance and guidance from the Ministry and SEMA,implemented several beneficial strategic management initiatives and achieved anticipated results withincreased coconut production, increased profit, enhanced staff productivity and discipline, etc..

  • 9. 12. Performance / Achievements during 2 01012.1 Profit: With the appointment of new Board since May 2010, the development aspects werecontinued vigorously with emphasis on Scientific Basis and open-transparent management programme, butwith strict discipline, resulting increase in coconut harvest, specially fallen nut collection and increase inoverall profit.

Profit is increasing since 2008 compared to 2006 levels, while themanagement spends funds on under-new planting, maintenance of buildings/machinery, etc. after 2009. CPL (08 Feb 2011) Page 9
  • 10. 12.2 Coconut Production: Harvested coconut production is increasing since 2008, afterthe Govt Management from 16.2 Million nuts in 2008 to 18.26 Million nuts in 2010.In 2010, CPL recorded a comparatively High Coconut Harvest of 18.3 Million Nuts, which wasmainly due to dedicated & efficient collection of ‘all’ Fallen Nuts with reduction in ‘Theft’ dueto strict management supervision since June 2010. Year Yield Nuts 2002 15,032717 2003 17,585652 2004 18,354602 2005 14,391265 2006 17,070323 2007 17,815317 2008 16,280051 2009 18,632247 2010 18,266,278Although the coconut yield during 2010 recorded a decrease of 1% compared to year 2009,resulta is a significant achievement of CPL Management, since the National CoconutProduction during 2010 was reduced by - 12%, while Other Govt & Private Coconut Estatesrecorded a Reduction of - 9% or more !!!.Hence ‘Actual’ CPL Coconut Yield for the year 2010 could be considered as an ‘increase’ of + 10 %compared to 2009 !!!

  • 11. Annual Rainfall (mm) CPL Estates Years (Rainfall mm) CPL Estates 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 Bingiriya 1,869 2,442 1,598 1,913 2,051 1,826 Chilaw 2,845 2,058 847 1,662 1,277 1,652 Divulapitiya 1,996 2,433 1,815 2,476 1,675 1,873 Madampe 1,408 997 2,585 1,734 2,122 Nikewaratiya 1,201 2,389 671 1,557 1,295 1,452 Palugaswawa 1,019 1,197 902 1,000 931 1,619 Puttalam 624 1,378 798 1,190 866 1,500 Mangalaeliya 674 1,060 685 1,534 845 1,019Annual rainfall received within CPL estates clearly show that the total rainfall levels during the year2009 was about 20-40 % lower than the 2008. It is essential to note that total ‘life’ period of amature coconut from its primodial initiation up to harvest is about 48 months consists of mainlythree growth phases.Phase I (Hidden-Primodial Phase): About 24 months within the coconut stem from primordial initiation up to visible opening of coconut flower.Phase II (Partly Visible-Flowering Phase): Another 12 months period involves from flower opening to nut setting through fertilizations of the Female nuts from the male pollens at the ends of flowers stems.Phase II (Visible-Nut Maturing Phase): From Nut settings to harvest of mature coconut takes another 12 months.Hence water deficit (drought or dry weather) could effect any one of the above waster sensitivegrowth stages, resulting a reduction in final harvestable mature coconut production. Research studiesindicated that the effect would be about 30% at each growth phase.Data presented in the Graph below clearly show that the low Rainfall from 2008 to 2009 follows thereduction of national coconut production from 2008 through 2009 up to 2010 affecting wholethree years of all three growth phases (similar reduction pattern of two arrows-Rainfall & production).
