Early Times Report

Jammu, Nov 29: The Jammu and Kashmir government has claimed to ban the 149-year-old tradition of Darbar Move to save 200 crores of its exchequer but still, bureaucrats are putting an additional burden on the government by enjoying luxuries and other facilities.
As many as six senior ‘Babus’- who have been shifted to the Union Territory of Ladakh after bifurcation of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir into two UTs have not surrendered their palatial bungalows.
Shockingly after being shifted to UT of Ladakh, these officers were also provided accommodation by the Ladakh government but still, they have “captured” official bungalows at Jammu.
According to sources, the J&K government spent every year huge amount on the renovation of these bungalows from its own coffer despite the fact that these officers are not part of Ladakh UT.
In June this year, the 149-year-old tradition in Jammu and Kashmir known as the 'Darbar Move', came to an end. The ‘Darbar Move’ was a biannual practice in which the government functions for six months each in the two capitals of Srinagar and Jammu. Around 8000-9000 employees working in Civil Secretariats, with headquarters in Jammu and Srinagar, would move along with files twice every year. The Government announced that the administration has completely transitioned to e-office, thereby ending the practice of the bi-annual ‘Darbar Move’. The government also cancelled residential accommodations of government officials as part of ending the age-old practice of 'Darbar Move'.
