If you are applying for a job of punjab service commission , You should have residence proof of Zirakpur, which comes under Punjab. The residential proof should be in the shape of "Adhaar Card, Ration Card/House Hold Supply Card,driving License or Voter Card, duly issued by the Government Authorities only. If you have such type of documetns, you can go a head.
