Inspector General of Police Punjab Inam Ghani has said that protection of life and property of citizens as well as timely redressal of problems faced by them is among the top priorities of Punjab Police. He said no effort should be spared to solve the problems of the citizens by ensuring timely action on all the applications. He further said that the process of processing the applications received from PMDU should be expedited and each application should be resolved within the stipulated timeline while in case of delay in resolving the issue, the applicant should be informed of all the proceedings so that they remain aware of the progress made on their application. He stressed that while talking to the applicants, the issues faced by them should be addressed with good manners and tolerance and no application should be lodged without satisfying the citizens and bringing it to the notice of the competent officer. He further said that for further improvement in service delivery, the suggestions received from the citizens should also be taken into consideration while paying special attention to the grievance redressal and monitoring process to improve the feedback of the citizens.
