Amid the scourge unleashed by coronavirus, Nagaland chief secretary Temjen Toy on Friday directed all the deputy commissioners of the state to report to his office the names and designation and other details of the officers who are not present in their respective district headquarters.
In an order, Toy said the report should reach his office by 3pm on June 1.
He warned that disciplinary proceedings will be initiated against them.
The order follows reports that the heads of many district offices are yet to report for duties in their respective district headquarters.
