Govt employees in JK to disclose Social Media accounts ‘before salary is paid to them’

Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir administration has ordered for social media profiles of the government employees, including Facebook and Twitter, before a salary or allowance is paid to them.

Reiterating that all the new entrants need verification by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), the administration has directed the department heads and new entrants to furnish these details via a government e-mail “to avoid violation of cybersecurity instructions of the government”.

The government, however, said that “given the urgency of matter” the officers can send the details via non-government email account.
