PEOPLE living in Nausori and Lautoka will be able to seek help and advice from the new Government Service Centres that are to be opened on Monday.

Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama will open the Nausori centre which is located at the Hemron Plaza .

The Lautoka centre, located on the ground floor of the Commissioner Western's building at Tavewa Ave, will also open on the same day. The centres will provide information to the public on government processes and queries.

Services that are currently availavble at the Government Information Referral Centre in Suva will be provided at these centres, which will be supervised by the divisional commissioners.

Public Service Commission's permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said these centres would be a rewarding experience for both the public and government.

"The locations of the GSCs have been carefully selected to allow residents of the greater Nausori and Lautoka townships convenient access in terms of minimum transport cost," Mr Chand said

"The concept of the service centres is to provide a one-stop facilitation service to any visitor who wishes to know more about the information and services that are delivered by government agencies.

"The GSCs are within walking distance of the major business areas and visitors will be able to get a wide range of services such as uplifting of application forms, scholarship information, lodgment of permits and licences, accessing external examination results, tourist information, and online services from one location."

The Labasa centre is under construction and will open next month.
