The Jammu and Kashmir government on Friday ordered revocation of the Group Mediclaim Insurance Policy for its employees starting from midnight December 31, following reports of irregularities in its allotment.

An order issued by the state government here said: “Sanction is hereby accorded to the revocation/withdrawal of government order number 406-FD of 2018 issued on September 9 regarding the implementation of the Group Mediclaim Insurance Policy of all state government employees.”

It ordered all the drawing and disbursing officers not to make any deductions from the salaries of employees beyond the said date.
