While chairing a high-level meeting to review the preparations for summer darbar move 2021, the Chief Secretary, B V R Subrahmanyam informed that there will be a substantial reduction in the transportation of records during the bi-annual shifting of capital from Jammu to Srinagar on 30th April 2021.

It was informed that the Government has taken concrete steps to switch to paperless office by rolling out e-office in the moving departments. As such, most of the official record has been uploaded to the e-office, and training of employees has begun. The switch to the online mode will avoid wear and tear as well as loss of official record during the bi-annual transit, besides saving the associated transportation cost.

The General Administration Department informed that the move offices observing 5-day week and 6-day week will close at Jammu on 30th April 2021 and 1st May 2021, respectively. All the offices will reopen in the summer capital city of Srinagar on 10th May.

The meeting reviewed the arrangements being made to transport employees and limited records on 1st -2nd May 2021 and 8th-9th May 2021. The security/ escort plan, availability of trucks and buses, recovery vans, mobile workshops, health facilities, and ambulances along the highway were discussed threadbare.

The Chief Secretary directed the Traffic Department to ensure hassle-free movement of the convoy from Jammu to Srinagar. He directed the BEACON and NHAI to ensure the good condition of the National Highway-44.
