"On the basis of inputs received from the inspecting officers some government offices were either found closed or in some cases the offices were found opened but no officer/officials were found present which is a deep concern and warrants strict action," the order of DDC reads.
In the backdrop of above facts, the salary of all the officers/officials are kept withheld with immediate effect till pending enquiry, the order reads.
