Patna: Bihar Government has made it
mandatory for all IAS Officers of the state cadre on
deputation to Centre to submit the details of their assets on
the lines of those serving in the state by the end of April
2011.

"It has been made mandatory for all the IAS officers of
the Bihar cadre on deputation to the Union Government to
furnish the asset declaration forms to the government by the
end of this month," General Administration Department (GAD)
sources said.

About 20 of the total 42 IAS officers serving at the
Centre did not comply with the GAD`s directive despite
repeated reminders, sources said.

The last date of filing the asset returns by all
bureaucrats and employees was February 28.

The government has also issued a warning that those
ignoring the order will not get their salaries for this
month.

"We`ll act tough if they do not comply by the end of
this month," they said, adding a reminder to all officers on
central deputation to submit their asset forms at the earliest
would be sent latest by this week.

The NDA Government has earned a lot of praise by going
ahead with its promise to put the asset declaration of
bureaucrats on the web.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Deputy Chief Minister S K
Modi, besides their 28 other cabinet colleagues have already
declared their assets which are now available on the
government websites.

More than 4.5 lakh government employees from Grade I to
Grade III too have already declared their assets.
