History of the Weligama Divisional Secretariat


After Sri Lanka has became a Britain crown colony, the Colebrooke Commission which was appointed in 1829 has presented recommendations to regulate regional administration, appoint Government Agents establishing Provisional Councils and divide each of the provinces to few districts under Assistant Government Agents. Hence the Southern Province was stipulated and it consisted of the area from the River Benthara to the Kumbukkan Oya. However the present southern province emerges in the year 1881.After Sri Lanka has became a Britain crown colony, the Colebrooke Commission which was appointed in 1829 has presented recommendations to regulate regional administration, appoint Government Agents establishing Provisional Councils and divide each of the provinces to few districts under Assistant Government Agents. Hence the Southern Province was stipulated and it consisted of the area from the River Benthara to the Kumbukkan Oya. However the present southern province emerges in the year 1881.

By the year 1890, Matara was nominated as a sub agent division thus separating it into five (5) revenue/income divisions, Weligama Koralaya, Morawak Koralaya, Gangabada Paththuwa, Kandabada Paththuwa and Wellabada Paththuwa with appointments of Mudliars to each division to assist the ruling Agent. With the independence in 1948, these five (5) revenue/income divisions has been redistributed into eleven (11) for the better convenience of admin. At this the seperation of Weligama Koralaya took place as North, South and West and the Weligama Sub Government Agent Division was recognized as the Weligama Koralaya West. The division included thirty-two (32) Grama Niladhari Divisions and was streamlined to eighty-six (86) Grama Niladhari divisions for further ease of administration. In 1992, there established a new divisional secretariat called Welipitiya consisted of thirty-eight (38) of the above Grama Niladhari divisions. And the rest forty-eight (48) Grama Niladhari divisions formed the Weligama Divisional Secretariat Area.

The Matara - Colombo Main Road and the Railway Line also run through the divisional secretariat.
