The district administration is all set to organise suvidha camps at the district level on October 29 and sub-division levels on October 28 to facilitate people with benefits of 15 pro-people schemes and policies of the state government.

Deputy Commissioner Isha Kalia on Wednesday directed all officials to hold suvidha camps across the district to ensure benefits of government schemes at the grass-roots level by delivering these facilities at their doorsteps, where people could visit to take the benefit of 15 different schemes, including five marla plots for landless citizens, pension scheme (old age, widow, dependent etc.), loans from SC/BC corporations/Bank Finco for repair of house, bus passes, pending mutation cases, MGNREGA job cards, waiver certificate of power arrears up to two kW capacity, pending CLU cases/maps etc.

Directing the departments concerned to work in tandem to make these camps successful in SAS Nagar, the DC said any kind of laxity in the work would be dealt with an iron hand.

She said it was an opportunity for people to get the benefit of several schemes under one roof without visiting different offices. She also added that the camps would prove to be a boon for the underprivileged sections by offering benefits of various schemes at their doorsteps.

Terming these schemes a game-changer, Kalia said only people’s active participation could make the initiative a mega success. She appealed to people to come forward on 28th and 29th to take maximum advantage of these camps.
