Punjab’s new finance minister Parminder Singh Dhindsa has said that the budget of the state would aim to curtail wasteful administrative expenses.
He was in Sangrur to launch three different helplines. He added that no new tax would be introduced in the state and the thrust of the government would be to check different tax thefts.
“Subsidies would continue as being provided at present,” he replied in a specific query on whether there was any plan of the government to minimise subsidies.
Dhindsa launched three helpline services in the suvidha centre at the district administrative complex. The helpline 1800-180-2030 is for the people of Sangrur to provide them information pertaining to government departments.
If a grievance has not been addressed thorough the proper channel, the complainant can call the helpline to find a remedy.
Deputy commissioner Sangrur Kumar Rahul said an online record of the complaints would be maintained. A copy of the complaint would be sent to the DC, the head of the department concerned, commissioner, grievances, and the complainant.
The DC said that the other two helpline numbers 75081-81800 and 80549-50600 will deal with cases of medical and veterinary emergencies, respectively and will function around the clock.
