The Punjab cabinet on Tuesday approved the establishment of 1,750 rural and 424 urban unified service delivery centres to provide 223 citizen-centric services to the urban as well as rural populace under a single roof.
The services of every department would be made available to citizens at their door steps in a hassle-free manner, within a minimum time period from these centres.
Disclosing this here, a spokesperson of the chief minister's office said in urban areas, one such centre would be planned within a radius of 1.5 to 2.5 square kilometres, based upon the population density. In rural areas, one service delivery centre would be planned for every cluster of villages having a population between 8,000 and 10,000.
Deputy commissioners would be the nodal officials to steer the programme in their respective districts.
