  1. Thank you for vital info provided. I wish to know how I may cancel my relocation, I was granted emergency relocation based on health grounds but after recuperating from the ailment I now wish to return to my first posting . I haven’t confirmed the relocation on my dash board though, I don’t know if it would have been withdrawn automatically as this would be good news. Thank you
