Camp in Budgam on Oct 28

BUDGAM: The Additional Deputy Commissioner Budgam Khursheed Ahmad Shah on Thursday in a meeting urged upon all the concerned heads to prepare a consolidated list of 40 to 50 beneficiaries who deserve and qualify to be provided free legal services and other guaranteed benefits envisaged through various schemes run by respective departments.
Shah said: The main focus of conducting such legal service camps on a large scale is to facilitate free basic legal services to the poor and underprivileged people who apart from lacking any approach cannot afford to spend their meager income to obtain such benefits.
Shah further said that mega camp to be held on October 28 is expected to witness a large gathering of people including beneficiaries. He said it will be mandatory for all concerned departments to install their individual stalls where each department has to display the demonstration of the services they are providing under Public Services Guarantee Act (PSG) and other beneficiary schemes to the people.
The meeting among others was also attended by CPO, all SDMs, and other concerned District and sectoral officers.
