Officers need to submit Immovable Property returns by 31st Jan

ALL government officers need to submit their list of immovable properties in a prescribed format by January 31, 2010, an office memorandum issued by the department of personnel and training (DoPT) dated January 28, said. Like IT Returns (Income Tax returns), it’s known in government circle as IP Returns (Immovable Properties returns).
Unlike politicians, bureaucrats don’t need to disclose their assets publicly though their records are being maintained by the government. In the office memo, for example, the group A officers of the Central Secretariat Services (CSS) are requested to send a copy the IP Returns which they would be submitting to their cadre or sub-cadre administration, to the CS-1 division of personnel ministry for our records.
In the IP Returns, the officers need to submit the details of the property, housing land and other buildings, and their current value needs to be mentioned. One column of the disclosure form pertains to the details in which the officer needs to disclose the names of then relatives in whose name the property is bought. The annual income from properties also needs to be mentioned.
The declaration form is required to be filled in and submitted annually by every class I and class II officers under Conduct Rules giving particulars of all immovable properties owned, acquired or inherited or held by him on lease or mortgage, either in his own name or in the name of any relative of the family, or any other person dependent on the government servant.
