IMPHAL, December 13: Chief Minister O Ibobi today inaugurated a sub-treasury office at Wangoi SDO office complex in Imphal West district.
Ibobi said the opening of the new treasury office will benefit the people of the sub-division in general and the pensioners in particular. In order to ease the process for transaction of cash to the sub-treasury office his government will be opening a branch of the Bank of India at Wangoi, he said. People of the area will not need to travel to Imphal now to buy non-judicial stamps as the government will make the same available at the sub-treasury office, Ibobi said while adding that a waiting shed has also been constructed there to allow the aged pensioners to get some relaxation.
He said the office was a long-cherished dream of the late chief minister Wahengbam Nipamacha and it has been ultimately fulfilled today.
Later, the chief minister distributed pension payment order to two pensioners. MLAs O Lukhoi, RK Anand and Karam Shyam were the guests of honour while Works Minister Dr Kh Ratankumar was the president at the inaugural function.
