The offices functioning six days per week will close at Srinagar on 31st October. All the departments are expected to ensure that the records are packed in boxes after working hours on the last day.

It has been asked to all the departments that they send their advance parties on 23 October, 2020, constituted of one Gazetted Officer and four to five Non-Gazetted employees who will receive the records in Jammu.

The departments should make sure that all the boxes are properly locked and their keys reach the advance parties in time. The SSP Security and Civil Secretariat will prepare a list of departments who fail to comply with the orders in this regard to the General Administration Department.

JKRTC will be making available enough buses in proper condition for transportation of Jammu based employees on 31 October and 1st November and employees based in Kashmir on 7th and 8th November 2020. The booking of buses will be for the destination of the employees wherever possible.

To shift the records from Srinagar to Jammu, J-K RTC will use trucks. The departments will requisition trucks from J-K RTC and the departments will bear the meeting and package charges.

The trucks will be allowed to enter after 5:30 PM on the last working day. The records will be loaded in the offices outside the Secretariat premises after working hours on the last working day. On November 1 loaded trucks will leave for Jammu in a convoy.

One crane, two empty buses and two empty trucks will be a part of the convoy in case, if any truck/bus breaks down in the middle of the journey. SSP Security will supervise packing and loading of the records from security point of view and issue clearance certificates to the drivers.
