However, to deal with the pendency, the minister said the proposal to sanction 40,000 new cases in the first instance is under the consideration of the finance department.
While 56,891 cases were pending under NSAP in the Kashmir division, 43396 of such cases were pending in the Jammu division.
Similarly, there was a pendency of 89,182 cases under ISSS in the Kashmir division and 64,517 cases in the Jammu region.
Also, where Kupwara (9,891) leads the list of most pending cases under NSAP, Srinagar (27,661) headed the list of pendency in the state under ISSS.
Pertinently, during the previous government 28 persons were engaged as Chairperson/Vice Chairperson/Deputy Chairmen of various Boards/Corporations/PSUs in the State.
Immediately after the imposition of the Governor's Rule last month, the State Government had asked all the Administrative Departments to implement the provisions of Standing Operating Procedure which inter-alia provide resignation of members/ chairpersons of various statutory/non-statutory Boards and Organizations.
