Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir government Monday warned its employees for bypassing “proper channels” while approaching higher offices including those of the President, Prime Minister’s offices, Lieutenant Governor’s Secretariat or Chief Secretary for redressal of grievances pertaining to service matters.
An order issued in this regard by the General Administration Department (GAD) said that such acts “being in violation of the Jammu and Kashmir Civil Services Conduct Rules, 1956 have been viewed seriously by the authorities.
“Accordingly, it is enjoined upon all employees working in various Departments/Organizations to desist from approaching such offices henceforth, follow the prescribed procedures and approach the appropriate authorities for redressal of their genuine grievances. Any violation of these instructions by any employee shall invite strict disciplinary action under Rules,” it said.
