The Punjab Shehr-e-Khamoshan Authority Graveyards offers a few integral facilities at all its graveyards. These services include an ambulance service for the transport of the body, a mortuary, female and male Ghusal areas, a Janazgah, burial kits etc. All these services are provided free of cost to anyone who is unable to afford them.
Existing graveyards have extremely poor conditions with little maintenance and presence of meager grave space. Grieving citizens are further distressed by the burial and funeral process given exploitation and corruption adopted by the workforce managing existing graveyards across Punjab.
