Chandigarh, April 20
In response to the Chief Secretary Sh. Karan Avtar Singh’s appeal and in view of the unprecedented damage caused to Punjab’s economy by the coronavirus pandemic, the Chief Information Commissioner and State Information Commissioners at the Punjab State Information Commission (PSIC) have decided to contribute 30% of their basic pay for the next three months (starting April 2020) to the Punjab CM’s Relief Fund-COVID 19.
This was voluntarily agreed to by the CIC and all SICs, with a view to supporting the Punjab Government’s ongoing efforts to pool all available resources to meet the unprecedented challenges post by the emerging public health crisis.
