SRINGAR:The Jammu and Kashmir government has read out the riot act to its employees warning them that it would stop their salaries from this month (August) if they do not attend office.
The divisional commissioner in an order has directed heads of departments not to pay salaries to those employees who play truant, said a media report on Friday.
Report quoting the order said the decision was taken after reviewing the attendance of employees for month of July.
Asking for strict compliance, the divisional commissioner has warned “any deviation from the order will be viewed seriously and recovery would be made from personal account of the erring officer’’.
All government offices have witnessed thin attendance since July 8 after the killing of Hizb commander Burhan Wani.
