IPS officers failing to submit IPRs to be denied promotion
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Nov 20: Toughening its stand on IPS officers who fail to submit their immovable property returns (IPRs) by January 31, next year, government has decided to deny promotion to them.
The decision to deny vigilance clearance to those IPS officers who do not submit their IPRs has been taken by the Home Ministry after it was found that the property returns of 713 officers for the year 2010 (as on 1.1.2011) had not been received by the central government.
A vigilance clearance is mandatory for any officer to get a promotion or any deputational assignment - both within and outside the country.
After several reminders to the state governments, the names of officers whose property returns have not been received by the central government was put on the MHA website.
On November 4, the Home Ministry had asked state governments to ensure that IPS officers in their cadre submit their IPRs by January 31, 2012.
The ministry had shot off letters to the states saying every IPS officer is required to fill forms attached to their Performance Appraisal Report (PAR) and submit them to the reporting authority. While submitting their PARs, the IPS officers have been asked to submit property returns for 2011 as on January 1, 2012 to the state government by January 31. The list, which has details of nearly one-fifth of the sanctioned strength of 3,393 officers, also contains names of some state police chiefs and other senior police officers.
Bihar has topped the list as 85 out of a sanctioned strength of 156 have not submitted the information whereas Andhra Pradesh has an outstanding of only seven IPS officers out of 185 who have failed to provide it.
Uttar Pradesh, which has a sanctioned strength of 335 IPS personnel, also has an outstanding of 79 officers who have not submitted their IPRs.
