Planning cadre extends strike till Saturday

SRINAGAR: The Planning cadre has decided to continue their three day pen down strike till September 29th against the decision of State Administrative Council to shift Core Developmental responsibilities from Planning, Development and Monitoring Department (PD&MD) to Finance Department.
Earlier the Planning Cadre had announced “Pen Down Strike” on 25th & 26thSeptember.
A statement said that they had approached all the Advisors and concerned Administrative Secretaries to redress the concerns of the Planning Cadre, which has emerged after the issuance of the Government Order 407-FD of 2018 dated: 20/09/2018 by Finance Department.
“The government order has been issued without waiting for the constitution of the committee for working out the modalities in the matter. The ambiguity in the above quoted order has virtually paralyzed the function of PD&MD and thus the order need to be kept in abeyance with immediate effect,” statement reads.
