LAHORE
Chairman Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) Dr. Umar Saif has said that to convey the citizens’ complaints direct to the chief minister Punjab and other competent authorities, 2,000 Kiosk Centres will be established at the main public offices across the province.
He stated this while addressing a meeting held with Secretary I & C Punjab Javed Akbar at the Arfa IT Tower on Saturday. DG IT Rizwan Ahmad and Joint Director Fasieh Mehta were also present.
Dr. Umar Saif said that manned with the PITB’s personnel, the Kiosk Centres would enable even illiterate persons to put their complaint online authentically. He said the new system would also remove the flaws appeared during the operational Citizen Feedback Monitoring System. Lauding the idea, Secretary I & C said it would resonate like “e-Bell” that once rung by a complainant, the voice would reach top to the chief minister without any delay and hurdle.
Nobody will be there between the citizen and the CM to obstruct his/her voice as presently practised in the public offices. He opined that initially the Kiosk Centres would be established at the Civil Secretariat Lahore, Commissioner’s and RPO’s offices at each Divisional Headquarters, DCO’s and DPO’s office at each district and AC’s and TMO’s office at each tehsil of Punjab. He assured that the project would get full support from the chief secretary and all the basic facilities like chairs, drinking water and shadow would be provided to the Kiosk Centres.
He said that once succeeded, the project would render great services to the human kind and the impoverished public. Finally it was decided that the work would be started as soon as the design of the Kiosk Centre was approved by the competent authority.
