This decision aims not only to optimize the utilization of long vacant building but also curtail public expenses. Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu said, “The office of Police Helpline is already functioning from the Multi-storey Parking Tutikandi and now six additional departments will operate from this building, which will ensure optimal use of the building which is lying vacant for a long time. This would not only put to use the unutilized building constructed with the public money but also save more than Rs. 10 lakh per month which is being spent for hiring rented accommodation for these government offices.”

Under the Chief Minister’s directives, the General Administration Department has overseen the modifications to the building’s interior to suit the specific needs of the respective departments. The Public Works Department, responsible for the building’s transformation has completed the task, making the office space ready for occupancy.  The GAD has now directed these six departments to apply for the electricity and water connections in their names at the earliest to facilitate the smooth transition to the new building.

Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu said that the present State Government is dedicated to resource mobilization and fiscal responsibility. He attributed the State’s financial challenges to the previous BJP Government’s mismanagement but expressed confidence in the present government’s ability to steer the economy back on course.

Stressing the significance of saving public money as a means of revenue generation, he reiterated the commitment of the present State Government to the optimal use of existing infrastructure in line with the government’s broader agenda for Vyavastha Parivartan.  He said that repurposing the under-utilized building constructed with public funds aligns with the Government’s commitment to reduce wasteful expenditure.
