The Jammu & Kashmir government has directed its employees to desist from bypassing proper channels for redressal of their grievances.
The general administration department of J&K on Monday directed its employees to approach the appropriate authorities for redressal of their genuine grievances. “It has been observed that some officers/officials working in various government departments of Jammu and Kashmir are bypassing proper channels and approaching higher offices viz. that of Hon’ble President’s Secretariat, Hon’ble Prime Minister’s Office, Hon’ble Lieutenant Governor’s Secretariat, and the Office of the Chief Secretary, for redressal of grievances pertaining to service matters,” read the circular.
