Punjab IAS officers told to disclose details of property returns

The Punjab State Information Commission today ordered all serving IAS officers in the state to disclose details of their property returns. Taking up an appeal filed by advocate HC Arora of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, the State Information Commissioner (SIC), Lt-Gen PK Grover (retd), observed that the disclosure of property returns was a "step against corruption."

Grover today directed the Public Information Officers (PIOs) of the Department of Personnel to "provide copies of the property returns of IAS officers, who are serving the Punjab Government in respect of the first year of their service and latest property return filed by them in 2008-2009. However, the property returns of IAS officers, who have retired need not be supplied." These directions have to be complied with up to December 24.
