Wear masks or face disciplinary action, J&K Admin to secretariat employees

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.


Srinagar, Jul 1 Jammu and Kashmir Administration has directed civil secretariat employees in summer capital, Srinagar, to wear masks or face disciplinary action, including forfeiture of annual increment.

Commissioner-secretary to Government, Manoj Kumar Dweivedi said that it has been observed that some employees working in some departments are not displaying COVID appropriate behavior, violating social distancing norms, not wearing face masks or wearing face mask improperly.

This irresponsible behavior on part of these employees not only endangers their own live but also the lives of other employees working on the premises, an issue which has been viewed seriously by authorities.

He said accordingly all employees working in the civil secretariat are hereby enjoined to follow COVID appropriate behavior, wear face masks properly and adhere to social distancing normal.

However, any violation in this regard shall be treated as breach of conduct rules and disciplinary action, including forfeiture of annual increment shall be initiated against such employees.

Only half of civil secretariat offices of annual “Darbar Move” are functioning from summer capital, Srinagar, while rest are operating from winter capital, Jammu.

The Union Territory (UT) government has directed employees who will now permanently stay in Jammu or Srinagar to surrender their accommodation in one of the cities. (UNI)
