The Punjab government on Wednesday dissolved 28 improvement trusts and appointed civil service officials in place of chairpersons, who were political appointees of the SAD-BJP government in its previous term.

It is a routine procedure, officials said.

Deputy commissioners have been deputed as administrator at the districts headquarters, while SDMs were given the charge of dissolved improvement trust at the sub-division level, they said.

The dissolved improvement trust included Amritsar, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Sangrur, Bathinda, Patiala, Phagwara, Fardikot, Pathankot, Kapurthala and Tarn Taran.
