10 weeks after opening of Durbar, files remain confined to bags, boxes at Civil Secretariat

Early Times Report
srinagar, July 16: It has been over 10 weeks since the secretariat, or Durbar, was shifted back to Srinagar, yet several departments have not taken out files from the boxes they carried from Jammu.
As part of the bi-annual 'Durbar Move', under which the Jammu and Kashmir government functions for six months each in the twin capitals, all move offices closed in Jammu in last week of April and opened in Srinagar on May 7.
Surprisingly, several departments are yet to open steel boxes. Steel boxes and wardrobes lie scattered on the floor in corridors of Civil Secretariat.
On Monday when this reporter visited Civil Secretariat, people complained that officials in several departments were hardly getting their works done.
"An official in the Finance Department told me to visit next week with my problem, as they were yet to untie their files," said Ghulam Mohammad, a resident of Budgam said.
"I was told that my case related file is still in box even after opening of civil secretariat after 10 weeks," said Ashiq Ahmad, a resident of Ganderbal said, who was waiting out the office of Industries and Commerce Department on Monday. He said he has been pleading to officials to open the file, but to no avail.
To make the matters worse, the stacks of rusty metallic trunks and boxes make it difficult to move in the aisle.
"If this is the condition inside the Civil Secretariat, what will one expect in other government offices? The rusty boxes are giving an ugly look to the Civil Secretariat. Besides, anyone can steal the files lying scattered on the floor," an official from the Industries and Commerce Department said.
The Civil Secretariat was opened in the summer capital on May 7, after it operated, as is the 150-year-old ritual in the dual-capital state, from Jammu for six months.
However, only few secretaries can be seen available in the secretariat these days.
"Sahab has gone somewhere," several officials who were outside the official chamber of several secretaries said.
"We visited the Civil Secretariat three times in the last 10 days, but could not meet Secretary Irrigation and Flood Control," Mohammad Ashraf, a resident of Budgam, said, waiting along with a group of people outside the Secretary Irrigation and Flood Control Department said.
