JAMMU: As per circular issued by the General Administration Department (GAD) Thursday , Departments seeking clarifications on the Model Code of Conduct and other Election related issues have been asked to abstain from approaching the Chief Electoral Officer J&K directly on their own.
“As per the procedures, Heads of the Department seeking clarifications from another department are required to route such requests through the concerned Administrative Department(s). Therefore, any clarification from the Election Department (ED) is also to be obtained through the concerned Administrative Departments and not directly.,” an official spokesman said.
“It has been further stated that any clarification on the Model Code of Conduct or any issue related to the Elections shall be sought from the Election Department only by the concerned Administrative Department. While seeking such clarifications, GAD be invariably kept posted,” the spokesman said.
