He further added that the government was yet to bring necessary guidelines regarding expenditure of the said amount.
The General Administration Minister informed that employees have been deputed to 95 per cent of the top posts at local bodies and they have been carrying out their works. Employees to the remaining positions would be dispatched to their respective workstations by June 15 to provide services to the people.
