New Delhi: The Union Home Ministry on Friday
asked state governments to ensure that IPS officers in their
cadre submit their immovable property returns (IPRs) by
January 31, 2012.

The ministry shot off letters to the states saying every
IPS officer is required to fill forms attached with their
Performance Appraisal Report (PAR) and submit them to the
reporting authority. While submitting their PARs, the IPS
officers should submit property returns for 2011 as on January
1, 2012 to the state government by January 31.

An MHA spokesperson said the ministry has noticed that
some heads of the police forces and some individual officers
have told the media that they had already submitted their
property returns.

"Unless the property returns are received by the Central
government, the record will not be complete and the Central
government has no option but to assume that the property
return(s) had not been submitted," the spokesperson said.

A list, which originally contained names of 864 IPS
officials, was revised after former RAW chief KC Verma,
former Uttar Pradesh and Punjab Police chiefs Karamveer Singh
and PS Gill, retired IPS officer of Bihar US Dutt protested
after finding their names among defaulters.

The spokesperson said property returns of 713 officers
for the year 2010 had not been received by the government.

After several reminders, the names of officers whose
property returns had not been received by the Central
government were put on the website of the Ministry of Home
Affairs.

The list, which names nearly one-fifth of sanctioned
strength of 3,393 officers, also contains Haryana Police chief
Ranjiv Dalal and Punjab DG Anil Kaushik, Additional DG of
Jammu and Kashmir Police K Rajendra as the officers who have
not submitted their IPRs for 2010.

Bihar topped the list as 85 of a sanctioned strength of
156 have not submitted the list whereas Andhra Pradesh had an
outstanding of only seven IPS officers out of 185 who have
failed to provide information.

Uttar Pradesh, which has a sanctioned strength of 335 IPS
personnel, also has an outstanding of 79 officers who have not
submitted their IPRs.
