Alamjit Singh Mann, one of the renowned social activists of Punjab, since 1988 has been specifically working on amending the sufferings of accident victims and efficaciously helping the blind children and the orphans. He has also been performing the last rights of unclaimed bodies. He has also been extending the help with missionary zeal to the orphans and the blind children.
For his exemplary services, on 22nd November 2001, Alamjit Singh Mann was been awarded Rashtriya Ratan award in New Delhi. At the Independence Day function in 2004, he was also awarded Punjab Government State award and Parman Patra from Cap. Amrinder Singh, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Punjab.
Alamjit Singh Mann has also opened a 24-hour helpline for the above-mentioned victims. Recently, Alamjit Singh Mann has also announced to open a free music academy for the blind and the poor children on his land in Zirakpur.
He organised a special Press Conference to make the people aware about this helpline which will also help the victims who suffered at the hands of the builders who promised them to give their houses/flats/plots in time but do not give them the possession of the property or delaying the construction of the houses of the victims. Many builders do not give the houses or plots and don’t even refund the amount. The home buyers pay to these builders by taking home loans from the banks and they are paying huge interests to the banks in the form of installments but still, they are unable to get their houses. And the builders use this money to spend on vacations and on expensive gifts.
According to the recent orders of the Honourable Supreme Court at the end of July 2019, the builders cannot delay while handing over the possession of the houses/plots/flats from the buyers or make them ready to refund the payment to the home buyers.
At this moment, Sh. Alamjit Singh Mann said, “I have always been into social service because I don’t believe this is a service it is our responsibility towards our society. For this particular service, I will do all the arrangements including the advocates, meetings with the builders, documentation, etc. at my own cost. I have never taken any kind of donation and this service will be available free of cost. For this cause, I have a whole team of advocates and lawyers which will help them. Even in future, I will try my best to take initiatives that will be helpful for society.”
The toll-free number for this service will be +91-8427953163.
