SRINAGAR — The Government of Jammu and Kashmir has announced an extension of the deadline for filing Annual Property Returns (APRs) on the PRS Portal, marking it as the “last and final opportunity” for its workforce.
Despite previous notifications urging employees to submit their property returns between January 1st and January 31st, 2024, a significant number have failed to comply, breaching this mandatory process.
Defaulting employees now face potential punitive action under the Jammu and Kashmir Public Men and Public Servants Declaration of Assets Act, including the risk of criminal misconduct charges under the Prevention of Corruption Act. Moreover, failure to submit APRs will result in the denial of vigilance clearance.
As a final chance, defaulting employees are granted a window from February 13th to February 27th, 2024, to submit their property returns online via the PRS Portal, including those who registered but did not complete the process.
Employees encountering technical issues, especially related to OTP, are advised to update their contact details and seek assistance at email@example.com.
Controlling Officers and Drawing and Disbursing Officers are directed to ensure compliance within their establishments, with Administrative Departments tasked with monitoring progress.
