Jammu and Kashmir government has asked the Administrative Secretaries to personally ensure that there are no changes in the scope of work after its commencement.

“It has been observed that Detailed Project Reports, after their vetting from the Competent Authorities, have many times been revised by the Departments after allotment of these works to contractors, thereby changing scope of the work, which is violation of the General Financial Rules, 2017, a matter which has been viewed seriously by the authorities” a circular stated.

The circular further stated that such practices need to end forthwith and all Departments need to ensure proper processing of infrastructure projects before their commencement so as to avoid recurrence of changes in the scope of works subsequently.

“Any deviation in this regard, shall be viewed seriously and shall invite disciplinary action” it reads.
