“Because of the threat perception, the government has decided to post Kashmiri migrant employees working in the Valley under the Prime Minister’s rehabilitation package in secured locations in the Valley by June 6.
“The safer location postings of these employees will be started immediately and the process to be completed by June 6,” the official said.
“No employee will be posted to work or reside in isolated areas or in a scattered manner,” the official added.
It was also decided that a dedicated email ID will be created for complaints and grievances, and promotion and preparation of seniority lists will be completed within three weeks.
