Srinagar: The civil secretariat offices re-opened here on Tuesday after functioning for six months in winter capital Jammu.
Chief minister Mufti Muhammad Sayeed was given a ceremonial guard of honour on his arrival at the civil secretariat.
Sayeed, along with state chief secretary Iqbal Khandey and other top officials went around different wings of the secretariat to see that the government functioning starts smoothly.
Offices of the governor, chief minister, cabinet ministers, senior bureaucrats and police officers function in Srinagar from May to October, and in Jammu from November to April.
Kashmir economic alliance, a conglomerate of traders, transporters, industrialists and prominent members of the civil society, has called for a shutdown against the alleged apathy of the state government towards the problems of the Kashmir Valley on the opening day of the government functioning here.
