THE Government Service Centre in the North has received 1163 complaints against government departments since its inception early last year.

Centre official Isoa Kotoivanuabalavu revealed this at the heads of departments meeting in Labasa last week.

"Out of this figure, 989 have been disposed of while 174 cases are pending. Percentage wise, we have managed to solve about 85 per cent of the cases brought before us," he said.

Apart from the cases, Mr Kotoivanuabalavu said they were working on completing a research hub that could be used by students to access the internet.

"This is to help students with their research instead of visiting internet shops. The availability of government scholarships has also been advertised and we also plan to conduct more awareness of such educational assistance."

Acting commissioner northern Alipate Bolalevu also encouraged staff members of the centre to continue with their good work.
