The leaders said that as part of citizen’s charter posters would be put in places of worship and by informing citizens on accessing civic amenities through weekly sermons and services to improve the quality of lives.
Executive director of COVA explained about the citizens entitlements campaign and how the blessing and collaboration of religious groups could have a great impact in achieving maximal outreach and take information of the services and how to access them to the grassroots to make it a household knowledge.
While, it is expected that hundreds of places of worship across the twin cities will be prominently displaying the posters of the citizens entitlements campaign giving detailed information to the public about all the services available, time limits within which they are to be delivered and different modes to register complaints at the departments concerned.
The main objective of the is to enable citizens to easily avail 56 services provided by GHMC, water works and electricity department as part of their citizens charters. However, most of them are not aware of these charters, different services offered and modalities for lodging requests and complaints so are generally deprived of the 56 essential
