Jammu, Dec 17: Transfers of JEs of JMC working in the same wards for decades were effected today. In order to achieve rationalization, contiguous wards were allotted to them so that their efficiency is improved. They were directed to handover their charges by 31st December after clearing all the pending bills and submitting work done statement of all the ongoing works. It’s important to mention here that about 15 days ago, an order was issued cancelling all the approvals made before 1st August, the works of which have not been started on ground. It had come to the notice of JMC Commissioner that there were dozens of administrative approvals which were pending execution on ground. By one single order, all that approvals were cancelled and instructions were issued to clear all that pending works and their payments by 30th December. After that no payments for these works will be entertained. This order was issued to stop the ongoing trend to execute works without any approval by JMC and then claiming payments and increasing the liabilities of JMC.
