Subject :- Submission of Immovable Property Return for the year 2009 – List of defaulting officers of CSS
The undersigned is directed to refer this Department’s O.M. of even number dated 22nd November 2010 and subsequent reminder dated 3rd January 2011 on the subject mentioned above.
In terms of CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964, under Secretary and above level officers of the Central Secretariat Service are required to submit annual immovable property return to this Division. The Immovable Property Return (IPR) pertaining to a year is required to be submitted latest by 31st January of the following year. Accordingly, the Immovable Property Return (IPR) for the year 2009 should have been submitted to this Division by 31st January 2010. However, despite reminders and publishing the list of the defaulting officers in the website of this Department, still a large number of officers have not furnished their IPR for the year 2009 to this Department. It is more than a year now and there is no justification in not submitting the return till date.
The list of officers whose IPR for the year 2009 has not yet been received in this Division is posted in the website of this Department Central Services Wing CS Division Central Secretariat Services Property Returns. Ministries/ Departments are, therefore, requested to obtain the IPR for the year 2009 from the defaulting officers presently on their rolls and send to this Department latest by 31st March 2011.
If any officer fails to submit the IPR, Ministries/ Departments may initiate disciplinary action under the relevant rules. The attention of the Ministries/ Departments is also drawn to the Annual Performance Appraisal Report (APAR) format which provides for indicating the date of submission of IPR. The date of submission of the IPR may be verified from the records and if it is found that an officer has failed to submit the IPR or submitted after the due date, the Reporting/ Reviewing Officers may take this into account while writing the APAR.
