officers of the Indian Police Service (IPS), who have not furnished their property details, to do so by September 20, failing which they would not be considered for promotion.
"The officers concerned be suitably advised to submit
their Immovable Property Returns (IPRs) for the year 2010

by this ministry within the aforesaid period, the names of the

vigilance clearance for empanelment to various levels at the
Centre and for consideration to promotion," a latest Home
Ministry notification said.
The earlier timeline in this regard for the top cops was May 15.
The Home Ministry has also asked the respective
authorities of these "defaulting" officers to ensure "strict
compliance" in this regard.
While property details of a number of IPS officers have
already been been posted on the website of the Home Ministry
--www.mha.nic.in--, the fresh notification has been issued
after the ministry found that a few officers are yet to do so.
The government has made it mandatory for officials of
civil services like Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and
the Indian Forest Service (IFS) among others to provide their
IPR details which are subsequently put on the official website
for public viewing.
