Provinces

The Provinces of Sri Lanka (Sinhala :පà - …à - à¶­ - Tamil :மா஠ாணம் - ) have existed since the 19th century but they didn't have any legal status until 1987 when the 13th Amendment to the 1978 Constitution of Sri Lanka established provincial councils following several decades of increasing demand for a decentralization of the Government of Sri Lanka. - 44 ] - - Between 1988 and 2006 the Northern and Eastern provinces were temporarily merged to form the North-East Province. Prior to 1987, all administration was handled by a district-based civil service which had been in place since colonial times.
Sri Lanka is divided into 9 provinces - 45 ] - - and 25 districts. - 46 ] - - Each province is administered by a directly elected provincial council:

Districts

The provinces of Sri Lanka are divided into 25 districts (Sinhala :දà - ’à - ƒà - Šà¶­à - Šâ€à¶»à - ’‌කà - Šâ€Œà¶š sing. දà - ’à - ƒà - Šà¶­à - Šâ€à¶»à - ’කà - Šà¶šà¶º - Tamil :மாவட்டம் - ). Each district is administered under a District Secretariat. The districts are further subdivided into divisional secretariats, and these in turn to Grama Sevaka divisions.
The Districts are known in Sinhala as Disa and in Tamil as Maawaddam . Originally a Disa (usually rendered into English as Dissavony) was a duchy, notably Matale and Uva. The Government Agent, who is known as District Secretary , administers a district.
These were originally based on the feudal counties, the korale s and rata s. They were formerly known as 'D.R.O. Divisions' after the 'Divisional Revenue Officer'. Later the D.R.O.s became 'Assistant Government Agents' and the Divisions were known as 'A.G.A. Divisions'. Currently, the Divisions are administered by a 'Divisional Secretary', and are known as a 'D.S. Divisions'. Rural D.S. Divisions are also administered by a 'Pradeshiya Sabha' and 'Pradesha Sabhai' (Sinhala and Tamil for 'Regional Council'), which is elected.
