Police Khidmat Markaz Punjab: An Overview
The cornerstone of their policing goals is improved service delivery to the public. Their goal
is to make their services more convenient for everyone. Another attempt in this direction

Khidmat Markaz were proficiently offering residents in their respective districts 13 services.

their driving permits and obtain character certificates, which was a major nuisance.
All Khidmat Markaz in Punjab have been consolidated in order to alleviate these issues,
broaden the scope of services, and increase geographic coverage. People can now obtain
the given services at their doorstep thanks to the adoption of the novel idea of an
Integrated Khidmat Markaz System. People can also file complaints with the Police Khidmat
Markaz against the Police Department.
As part of this Integrated System, Police Khidmat Counters are also being installed at District
Headquarters Hospitals to make it easier for citizens to obtain Medico Legal Certificates
without having to visit their local Police Stations. In addition to saving time, it will increase
system transparency. In the near future, Tehsil Headquarters Hospitals will also have access
to this facility.
Their offices are shut from Monday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and on

officer will respond to the application appropriately.
