Mihintale illuminations as it was known then, became an important item on the ANCL annual programme and continued as such up until late 1970s.
In 1983 ANCL decided to give up the hiring of generators for illuminations as it caused serious logistical problems.
In 2002, the ANCL management again raised serious concerns about the escalating CEB cost.
The ANCL chairman and the Secretary of the Company for the time being are the ex-officio chairman and the secretary of the trust under the provisions of the trust instrument.
ANCL received the support of teachers, the staff of the GA's office, and the ministry of education of the provincial Council in all of these endeavours.
