New Delhi: The Home Ministry has asked 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 latest by September 20. If the IPRs for 2010 are not received by this ministry within the aforesaid period, the names of the defaulting officers will be posted in the website of the ministry.

"Further, such defaulting officers would be denied 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, 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.
