Chandigarh, Mar 4 (UNI) Carrying forward the state government’s thrust on augmenting efficiencies through rationalisation, the Punjab Cabinet on Thursday approved restructuring of four more departments, including the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB), to create more employment opportunities in place of archaic, non-essential and long-vacant posts.
