Srinagar: Civil Secretariat, the seat of Jammu and Kashmir government, closed here Friday and will reopen in winter capital Jammu on November 5 as part of the biannual ‘Darbar Move’, a practice started by the then Maharaja Gulab Singh in 1872.
“Civil Secretariat and other Darbar Move offices closed in Srinagar today (Friday) and will now reopen in Jammu on November 5,” an official spokesman said.
The civil secretariat and other Darbar Move offices function in Srinagar for six months of summer and in Jammu for the remaining six months of the year.
