Jalandhar: The Punjab government has said it
will take all steps to ensure hassle-free implementation of
Right to Service Act, which aimed at providing various
services to people in a time-frame, in the state.

"We will take all steps for hassle-free implementation of
Right to Service Act. If there is any problem in providing
services in the stipulated time-frame due to any regulatory
hurdle, norms will be eased accordingly," chief secretary S C
Agrawal told a gathering of panchayat representatives here
yesterday.

Stressing on the need for mass public campaigns to aware
and educate people about the Act, he said, "People still don`t
know about the Act, due to which complaints are not being
filed even if the services are not provided within the
stipulated time-frame."

Agrawal said 67 services have been included under purview
of the Act and soon, other public services will also be
inducted under it.
