As many as 47,559 people availed services of Sanjh Kendras in the district from January 1, 2014 to March1, 2015.
Disclosing this at a meeting of senior police officials and prominent people here on Sunday, Jatinder Singh Khaira, senior superintendent of police (SSP), said that the Punjab police had established a successful link with the general public under this project and had ensured to provide satisfactory services through these kendras at the district and sub-divisional levels.
The SSP said that these centres, set up under the Punjab Services Act, 2011, were providing 25 services to the public in a time-bound manner through the single window system.
The services provided by these centres included registration and stay permission for foreign visitors, issuing copies of FIRs and DDRs, passport-related verifications, character verification, NoCs for vehicles and armed licences besides permission for various
public activities in the district.
Khaira said that the district police were committed to serve the people and called upon the people to avail the services of these computerised centres working in a transparent, fair and systematic manner. He further said that to avoid any untoward incident people must give detailed information to the police through these centres about the servants working in their houses.
