Government warned of disciplinary action against those employees who have adopted an inappropriate approach adopted towards Covid19 guidelines at Civil Secretariat, Srinagar.
The warning was issued to the employees after observing that “some employees working in various departments of the Civil Secretariat are not displaying Covid19 appropriate behaviour like they are violating social distancing norms, not wearing face masks, or wearing face marks improperly.”
A circular issued by the General Administration Department reads that the irresponsible behaviour on part of these employees not only endangers their own lives, but also risks the lives of other employees working on the premises, an issue which has been viewed seriously by the authorities.
Accordingly, all the employees working in the Civil Secretariat have been directed to follow the Covid appropriate behaviour by wearing the face masks properly and adhere to social distancing norms.
“Any violation in this regard shall be treated as breach of conduct rules and disciplinary action including forfeiture of annual increment shall be initiated against such employees,” the circular states.
