The J&K LG said that to begin with, pilot project has been launched in Srinagar, Jammu and Reasi districts of J&K UT and in the weeks ahead, the facility will be available in other districts as well.

“There will be minute by minute status update of the grievances on the portal. And if any laxity will be found, we can talk to the concerned elders of the district and the concerned officers. Action will follow if any delay or callousness is found while addressing the people’s grievances,” the LG said.

He said that another decision taken in the SAC was that district Superintendents of Police and Deputy Commissioners will remain present for people in their offices from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM, five days a week from Monday. “Similar directions are for the Divisional Commissioners and IGP’s of Jammu and Kashmir regions,” he said.
