The People's Service Counter implemented by the Human Resources Ministry will be extended nationwide, minister M Kulasegaran said today.
Kulasegaran stated that the programme, which was started in Perak on July 7, aims at bringing the departments and agencies under the ministry, such as the Social Security Organisation (Socso), Labour Department and Department of Occupational Safety and Health (Dosh) closer to the local community.
The Ipoh Barat MP said the opening of the temporary counter in the public market would make it easier for the local community to report various complaints and to seek employment insurance claims and other services provided.
“We're not done yet in Perak, it may take three months to complete the exercise in all the public markets in the state, and after that we will go to another state.
“We have received positive feedback from the public regarding the opening of the counter,” he told reporters after opening the counter at the Bercham Public Market here today.
