Constituency service was cited as the most time consuming aspect of a Sri Lankan legislator's job. This chapter examines the nature of the relationship between the members and their constituents as it pertains to the granting of particularized benefits. The first section looks at the growth of constituent demands for particularized benefits and the causes of it. This is followed by an analysis of the legislators' attitudes and behavior concerning the granting of particularized benefits. In Chapter 1 it was argued that the formal authority of a legislator affects the magnitude of the demands placed on the legislator. In addition, the nature and magnitude of demands made of all legislators are a function of external factors in the society.
