Minister holds surprise check at suvidha kendra

Punjab Revenue, Rehabilitation and Disaster Management Minister Bram Shanker Jimpa today made a surprise visit at the Suwidha Kendra at local District Administrative Complex in Moga. He said that the Suwidha Kendras operating in the state are meant to provide hassle-free services to the people not to create hassle for them.

He said that the purpose of his surprise visit was to get to know the problems of the people at the grassroots level.  “I had checked Sahibzada Ajit Singh Nagar (Mohali) yesterday and Suwidha Kendra in Moga today,” he said

He said after visiting here he’d come to know that it takes a long time for people to avail services at Suwidha Kendras.

Jimpa directed the in-charge of Suwidha Kendra to ensure that people visiting Suwidha Kendra should not face any kind of hassle.  He also asked senior officers to supervise the working of Suwidha Kendra to ensure the smooth functioning of these centres.

He also asked officers to extend counters to provide services to the people within the stipulated time frame. He made it clear that corruption in government offices would not be tolerated at all.

He said that the dealing of officers and employees with the general public should be supportive and in a friendly manner.  He said that sign boards should be put up at various places regarding the time limit for receiving services.
