Darbar move: J&K govt offices to open in Srinagar tomorrow
Jammu and Kashmir government is all set to start functioning from here tomorrow for next six months after shifting from winter capital Jammu as part of pre-independence biannual Darbar Move practice.
Raj Bhavan, Civil Secretariat and other offices closed in Jammu on April 25 and are scheduled to reopen here tomorrow as per the darbar move, a century-old practice under which government functions six month each in the two capitals.
The government will function in the summer capital till late October and then move to Jammu, the winter capital of the state, in the first week of November.
Authorities have made all necessary arrangements to ensure smooth functioning of the offices in the Kashmir Valley, which witnessed a spurt in militant activities including killing of political workers during the ongoing Lok Sabha polls.
While most of the Kashmir-based government employees associated with the Civil Secretariat and other departments arrived in the Valley on April 27, Jammu-based employees have started arriving here since yesterday, officials said.
On the reopening of offices, work will begin from 9.30 AM to 5 PM at the Civil Secretariat, they said, adding that for other departments located outside the Secretariat, work will begin from 10 AM to 4 PM.
