Almost all the services are provided by the government in Sri Lanka. Thus the burden on the general public is quite less. Transportation, Health, Education, Electricity, and water services are fully or partially provided by the government. Sri Lanka has a very distributed road network thus the transport service supply is in a good level. Rail transport is provided completely by the government while the bus transportation is provided by the government and the private sector. Three wheelers and taxi services also provided by private companies. Currently the government is able to provide electricity and water countrywide. However, Sri Lanka mostly depends on hydro power for electricity generation therefore during non-rainy season supply of electricity gets disturbed. In 2019 there was a power failure due to less rain fall as a result of the climate change. During emergencies and maintenance time there can be power and water provision failures, other than that service supply is consistent.
