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.
