Srinagar: The civil secretariat will reopen today after a gap of six months, even as it will also function from Jammu due to an upsurge in COVID cases in the Union Territory.
Officials said that the offices at the civil secretariat Srinagar formally reopened at 9:30 am today. “The civil secretariat will remain functional at both the places and the administrative secretaries will be available at Srinagar and Jammu as per the roster already worked out by the government,” he said.
He said the move offices of HoDs outside the civil secretariat shall also continue to remain functional both at Jammu and Srinagar.
“As many as 62 such offices will primarily function from Srinagar while 73 will primarily work from Jammu,” he said, adding that this arrangement has been done only for the duration of the deferment of Darbar Move.
According to him, 13 offices will have a civil secretariat-like arrangement during this period.
It is worthwhile to mention that the Jammu and Kashmir administration deferred the biannual Darbar move this summer due to an increase in COVID cases.
