The Centre is mulling disciplinary action against 70 IAS officers who have failed to file their asset details for 2011 despite several reminders issued by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT). 

As per all-India service (conduct) rules, 1968, every officer needs to submit Immovable Property Returns (IPR) latest by January 31 of every year.

The DoPT had earlier sent an individual reminder in July to all the defaulters to submit the details by August 31 after they missed two deadlines in January and May.

As per the information made public by the DoPT on November 12, 70 IAS officers out of total cadre strength of 4,377 failed to submit the IPR and their name has been posted on the website.

According to AIS rules, these 70 officers would be denied vigilance clearance and will not be considered for promotion and empanelment for senior-level posts in Government of India.

Sources in DoPT said many officers blamed the concerned state authorities for delay in forwarding the IPR filed by the officers.

“The officers have been asked to send a copy of IPR submitted to the states immediately to the Centre so that could be included in updated list,” source said.

The list includes the names of five officers of MP cadre, 10 officers of UP cadre, nine officers of Punjab cadre, six officers of UT cadre, six officers of Odisha cadre, six of Andhra cadre, four of Haryana cadre and   Uttaranchal cadre, on the website.
