The partial modifications were done in the referred office orders issued on 22.03.2020, 27.03.2020 & 15.04.2020, whereas it was said in the order that the remaining staff will continue to work from home on such terms and conditions as notified earlier, by the orders under reference.

It was further emphasized that all officers and staff, while commuting to and from office and also while at work, will strictly follow all precautions as per advisory/guidelines issued by the Government, and also as directed by the Registry, from time to time towards preventing the spread of the Covid-19 infection, like practicing social-distancing, undergoing thermal-screening, submitting self-declaration forms, wearing face masks etc.
