Babus not to take NGO awards without Govt nod
New Delhi: Taking serious note of some
officials receiving awards from NGOs without prior government
approval, Cabinet Secretary K M Chandrasekhar has cautioned
the bureaucrats to desist from such practice.
Acceptance of awards without prior approval of the
government was a violation of the Conduct Rules, he said in a
letter to Information and Broadcasting Secretary Raghu Menon.
The rules provided that government servants shall not,
except with the sanction of the government, receive any
complimentary, attend any meeting or entertainment held in his
honour, he said.
"However, it has been noticed that some officials have
accepted awards in the past from the NGOs without any prior
approval of the government," Chandrasekhar said and warned
that acceptance of any award in future without prior approval
would be viewed "adversely".
