JAMMU, June 21: Displaced Kashmiri Pandits (KPs), who have got state government employment under the Prime Minister's Special Package, will now have to stay with the Darbar Move (Secretariat) employees, who shift as and when the Darbar moves to both the capital cities of Jammu and Srinagar viz a viz with the other workers (Move as well as Non-Move).
Now, the displaced Kashmiri Pandits will not get residential accommodation in colonies exclusively meant for them. For them, such residential colonies will be developed where residential quarters to the move as well as non-move employees of the state government will also be made available.
At present, the state government is providing Transit Residential Facility in various districts for the displaced Kashmiri Pandits who have been employed under Prime Minister's Package in Kashmir.
However, from now on, the state government is going to stop the process of making Transit Residential Facility or colonies separately for the KP employees.
Under the new policy of the state government, instead of making separate housing colonies for the displaced people, mixed housing facilities will now be developed at different places. In this mixed residential facility, there residential quarters will be provided to move as well as non-move employees of the state government, where they can live with their families.
The idea behind such a move of the state government is to promote the centuries-old communal harmony and mixed culture of Kashmir.
According to official sources, the sites have been identified for the construction of these mixed residential colonies and the detailed project report is being worked on. These proposed colonies will also have community buildings, parking lots, parks, playgrounds and green belts, they added.
