13 August 2016 Current Affairs: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal has inaugurated the state's first 'Sewa Kendra' where people will be able to avail 243 services under one roof.
This is a step towards ensuring governance reforms in the state. These centres would act as a catalyst to help people in getting their routine administrative works done in a speedy manner.
A total of 2,147 Sewa Kendras have been constructed at a cost of Rs 500 crore. Of these, 389 are in urban areas and 1,758 in rural areas which will provide more than 243 services to the people.
The kendras will minimise public interaction with various offices and enhance efficiency of the administration and delivery of services to common people.
The state government is in constant touch with the Sikhs in Kashmir Valley. The government and SGPC would leave no stone unturned for safeguarding the interests of Sikhs in Jammu and Kashmir.
Exuding confidence that the SAD-BJP combine would win the Punjab Assembly polls next year, he said turncoats and opportunists hardly have any impact on the polity of state, and only the verdict of people matters.
