Cabinet meeting today
Jammu, July 26: Jammu and Kashmir Government is likely to give final nod to the much awaited transfer policy besides renaming law department. The proposal will be put before the state cabinet which is scheduled to meet in Srinagar on Tuesday.
Well informed sources told Greater Kashmir that the transfer policy, formulated by the government in March this year, will be put before the cabinet for its approval. The proposed transfer policy had failed to get cabinet node amid strong objections by Congress ministers earlier in April this year.
It was learnt that the reservations expressed by the Congress ministers have been addressed and the proposed policy will be tabled before the cabinet for its approval on Tuesday.
The cabinet, sources said, is also likely to discuss a proposal for renaming Law Department as Department of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs. “Since years the same minister looks after both the departments of parliamentary affairs and law as such a proposal is being mooted to club the two departments”, sources said.
If all goes well, the cabinet may concede a long pending demand of Public Sector Undertaking employees by converting COLA into DA. Pending DA arrears of the PSU employees are also likely to be released, they added.
Proposals to lease out 306.18 Kanals of land at Nagrota, Jammu, to Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and transfer of 100 Kanals of land belonging to SRTC to Planning & Development Department may also come up for discussion.
The cabinet, sources said, is also likely to give its nod for declaration of 23 villages as Backward Areas. At least 3.7 hectares of land at Jakti Jammu is also being proposed to be handed over to Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC) for construction of slaughter house.
The health department is also likely to seek re-employment of a surgeon, posted at GMC Jammu, and retiring this month.
