Guv directs for strict compliance of SRO 164

This report had been sought after a media report which alleged that a number of government servants in J&K are occupying top positions in various sports Associations without having procured the State.

J&K Governor, N N Vohra, has directed the General Administration Department (GAD) to ensure strict compliance of SRO 164 ‘which prescribes that no government servant is allowed to continue as an office bearer in any sports body without the state government’s prior permission’.

A Raj Bhavan spokesperson, in a statement, said the Governor has taken a serious view about the report forwarded by the J&K State Sports Council which provides the names of office bearers of 53 sports Associations in J&K.

“This report had been sought after a media report which alleged that a number of government servants in J&K are occupying top positions in various sports Associations without having procured the State Government’s prior permission”, he said, adding that the Governor has directed immediate action in the matter.
