Around 56 departments and 6500 officers working under government have been linked to Chief Minister’s Service Resolution Helpline by Geo Mapping and Geo Tagging. Thus this will make the process of government work paperless.
Helpline will function 6 days a week (Monday-Saturday) from 7 am to 10 pm and the call center will be able to file 40 complaints simultaneously.
Every complaint will be resolved within a period of 7-14 days. Strict action will be taken on delay in resolving the complaint of people.
CM Thakur would himself regularly monitor the progress of helpline. He will sit at helpline center every month and will review solutions to the problems related to their respective departments.
