Punjab Launches Scheme For Doorstep Delivery Of 43 Govt Services

Chandigarh: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has launched its 2024 campaign in Punjab, with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann inaugurating the “Bhagwant Mann Sarkar Tuhade Dwar” doorstep delivery scheme. This initiative, which proved successful in Delhi, offers Punjab residents the convenience of accessing 43 government services, including birth, marriage, and death registration certificates, by dialling the helpline number 1076 from their homes.

The AAP asserts that this remote governance approach will not only simplify people’s lives but also result in significant cost savings for the state exchequer, estimating over ₹200 crore by eliminating logistical expenses. Bhagwant Mann, terming the launch as “historic,” envisions a future where the solution to common citizens’ unnecessary visits to government offices will be traced back to this initiative.

Taking a dig at the BJP and Congress, Arvind Kejriwal highlighted the AAP’s commitment to fulfilling welfare promises, contrasting it with the perceived lack of intent from previous governments in Delhi and Punjab. Kejriwal emphasized that the doorstep delivery scheme, initiated in Delhi five years ago, could have been implemented in Punjab much earlier, criticizing the inaction of governments over the past 75 years.

Describing the move in Punjab as a revolutionary step, Kejriwal emphasized the transformative impact of the AAP’s approach to governance, setting it apart from previous administrations in the state.
