The Punjab government has decided to hold three sangat darshan or grievance redress meetings for non-resident Indians (NRIs) at Moga, Jalandhar and Ludhiana.
NRI affairs minister Tota Singh said in a release here that chief minister Parkash Singh Badal would preside over these programmes, at Moga on December 28, Jalandhar on January 16, and Ludhiana on January 17.
NRIs hailing from Moga, Ferozepur, Fazilka, Muktsar, Bathinda, Mansa and Barnala districts are being invited to the Moga meeting; from Jalandhar, Kapurthala, Hoshiarpur, Amritsar, Tarn Taran, Gurdaspur and Pathankot at Jalandhar; and NRIs from Ludhiana, Nawanshahr, Rupnagar, Mohali, Patiala, Fatehgarh Sahib and Sangrur for the Ludhiana sangat darshan.
An email address - email@example.com - has been created to receive complaints of NRIs well in advance by December 15, so that required action could be taken and officers concerned remain available at the programme, according to the release. Tota Singh asked the participating NRIs to bring their passports, OCI, PIO, or NRP cards, as identity proofs.
Principal secretary, NRI affairs, Sanjay Kumar on Wednesday reviewed the arrangements with the respective deputy commissioners through video-conferencing.
