Ambalakandage Jayasinghe


The area selected for the purpose of this study is Hulandawa left bank agricultural settlement scheme which is situated towards the East of the Moneragala town (capital of Moneragala district which is in Uva Province, Sri Lanka) with a distance of nearly five miles. But, the western border of the settlement scheme is very close to the Moneragala town because the scheme extends lengthwise from the west to the East. Therefore, the settlement scheme lengthens more than four miles. The settlement scheme is bordered on the western, northern and eastern sides by a few traditional old villages. The Hulandawa river flows along the southern border. On the western side of the settlement scheme is bordered by Beranhana, on the northern side by Wiharamulla, Aliyawatta, Kaudawa and Wedikumbura, on the north-eastern side by Weheragala and on the eastern side by Tenagallanda. The settlement scheme is linked with Moneragala town by two motorable roads, one of which is macadamized and the other is gravelled. As the settlement scheme is accessible through these two roads the transportation of productions to the market centre at Moneragala town is not difficult. Almost all the productions in settlement area are agricultural goods and are amid at domestic consumption and trade in market.
