An amnesty period has been declared by the IESL to apply for reinstatement of membership. This is valid until 16th Sep 2020

The Council of the Institution of Engineers, Sri Lanka (IESL), decided to provide an Amnesty Period of 6 months for those whose membership lapsed due to non- payment of membership fee, consecutively for more than three years. This special amnesty period is valid only from 16th March 2020 to 16thSeptember 2020.

Please settle your overdue membership fee before the deadline. It will be calculated based on the current year subscription rate, number of years in arrears and a 25% surcharge on the total [(current year subscription rate x no of years in arrears) + 25% surcharge on total]. You need to submit only the information pertaining to the lapsed membership (if requested). However, you will be issued a new membership number if your membership is lapsed for more than 3 years. For those whose membership is lapsed for less than three years, the existing membership number can continually be used after settling the membership arrears.
