Employees should not bypass the proper mechanism for their complaints
By: Muzamil Bhat CK
The government of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday has asked its employees to go through the established grievance redressal mechanism and not approach the higher offices directly.
Warning the employees not to bypass the proper channels, the government has said that they will take appropriate action if they find the employees breaching such an established system.
“It has been observed that some officers/officials working in various Government Departments of the Jammu and Kashmir are bypassing proper channels and approaching higher offices viz that of President’s Secretariat, Prime Minister’s Office, Lieutenant Governor’s Secretariat and the Office of the Chief Secretary, for redressal of grievances pertaining to service matters,” reads a government order, a copy of which is lying with GNS. “These acts being in violation of the Jammu and Kashmir Civil Services Conduct Rules, 1956 have been viewed seriously by the authorities.”
Accordingly, the government enjoyed upon all employees working in various Departments and Organizations to desist from approaching such offices. Henceforth, they have been asked to follow the prescribed procedures and approach the appropriate authorities for redressal of their genuine grievances.
“Any violation of these instructions by any employee shall invite strict disciplinary action under Rules.”
