Around 500 IPS officers which includes DGPs and IGPs, have failed to file their property details for the year 2016. This may lead to denial of promotion and cancellation of vigilance clearance.
All IPS officers a re required to file their Immovable property Return (IPR) in a prescribed format by 31st January every year as per the All India Services (Conduct) Rules, 1968.
By March 31, 2017 only 3,3,90 IPS officers had filed their IPR out of the total strength of 3,905 IPS officers.
Failure to declare details of property by the IPS officers may force the home ministry to take action against the erring officials. This could include denial of promotion and vigilance clearance.
Explanation is demanded from those IPS officers who failed to file their IPR as per the orders given by home ministry to all state governments and Union Territory administrations.
According to the Public Servants (Furnishing of Information and Annual Return of Assets and Liabilities and the Limits for Exemption of Assets in Filing Returns) Amendment Rules, 2014, all central government employees except those working as peons or multi-tasking staff need to file property returns. The rules are also notified under the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act.
