The post of MD J&K, Housing Board is still lying vacant.”
“Arun Kumar Manhas, KAS, Project Director, Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan, is transferred and posted as Deputy Commissioner, Kishtwar”, Government order no 1042-JK (GAD) dated 12/11/2020 read but the officer second time refused to join his new place of posting.
