Govt directs not to release salary of unvaccinated Civil Sectt employees

It has been directed by government to withhold the salaries of employees of civil secretariats of Jammu as well as Srinagar who have not been vaccinated.

Their list has been sought for the next action. This tough and surprising decision has been taken on the account of rising cases of Covid-19 pandemic in Jammu and Kashmir so as to make sure the employees of civil secretariats get vaccinated as soon as possible.

It is pertinent to mention that various directions were given earlier as well but employees did not take it serious and avoided vaccinations for one reason or other, reportedly.

An official said that a list of those employees, along with names and designations who were not vaccinated, was published; however, their status was still to be ascertained.

In these situation, the General Administration Department (GAD) has asked the Financial Commissioner (Additional Chief Secretary)/Principal Secretary/Commissioner/Secretary and Secretary to the government not to draw the salary of un-vaccinated employees working in their respective departments.

Thus departments have also been asked to share details with the GAD of such employees who have yet not vaccinated.

“Vide this department’s OM dated 08-07-2021, 13-07-2021, instructions have been issued to all the Administrative Secretaries for ensuring vaccination of all employees working in their departments in civil secretariat, J&K,” read the order sent to all the departments.
