“It has been observed that given the financial closing and other preoccupations, many employees have not been able to submit their property returns within the extended timeline and have thus defaulted. Since failure or non-submission of property returns by government employees invites action under the provisions of the Jammu and Kashmir Public Men and Public Servants Declaration of Assets Act and rules made there under, the matter was re-considered in the General Administration Department,” a GAD notification stated.
