The pamphlet being circulated on social media is a piece of rough work created with dummy dates for discussion at higher level and is not an authorized or approved Departmental notification, said the senior official.

He has advised all concerned not to circulate the 'unauthorised pamphlet' and also not to be misled by such unauthorised information.
