Early Times Report

Srinagar, June 24: In-spite of clear directions from Governor, several IAS, KAS officers have failed to submit property statements.
Irony is that many of these officers are themselves heads of departments either administrative secretaries or Directors of various Government departments.
Details accessed by Early Times from the official website of General Administration Department (GAD) reveal that there are more than two dozen senior Government officers who have not at all submitted their property statements for the year 2017which was to be submitted by December 2017. Official details reveal that IAS officers P K Tripathi (on central deputation), A K Mehta (on central deputation), Bipul Pathak, A K Parmar, H K Sharma (Comm Secretary ARI & Trainings), Mohammad Javed Khan (Secretary Higher Education, Technical Education, Sports, Tasneem Majid (Central Deputation), Prasana Ramaswami (DC Reasi), Kumar Rajiv Ranjan (Director ISM) and few other IAS officers have not submitted these details before GAD.
In addition to it DG Youth Services and Sports Sheikh Fayaz Ahmad, SSRB Member Rukhsana Gani, Additional DC Jammu Rehana Batool, Director Horticulture Manzoor Qadri, DC Kupwara Khalid Jehangir, Asif Hamid Khan (Joint Resident Commissioner) and many other KAS officers have also not submitted their annual property statements. Sources say that many IAS / KAS officers of J&K who have submitted the property statements are not correct and needs to be investigated thoroughly. Many officers who have submitted property statements have not mentioned the present market value of the property which is an offence.
Pertinently following the observations that employees are not submitting the requisite annual property statements to the competent authorities, the government in April this year had directed all the controlling/drawing and disbursing officers to strictly direct all the officers/officials to furnish the statements in time and that any lapse will be reflected in the APRs/ACRs.
Official sources say that there is a huge default in the submission of the property statements by the employees of various departments who are bound under the government ruling to submit property statements. The government in its recent circular had directed all the controlling/drawing and disbursing officers to direct all the officers/officials to furnish the statements.
The circular reads as: "it has been noticed with concern that officers/officials are not submitting the requisite annual property return statements to the competent authorities resulting in to no compliance of standing government instructions issued from time to time in this regard,"
"It is Clarified here that as per the Sub section 2 of section 9 of the Jammu and Kashmir Public men and public servant declaration of assets and other provisions Act, 1983 and clause (III) Rule 2 of the J&K public servants declaration of assets and other provisions Rule, 1998 read with SRO 415 of 2003 dated 11.12.2013 in which it has been clearly indicated that every public servant has to submit Annual property return statements of the assets held by him and his family members in the month of January every year and shall indicate the reason for increasing, if any, in the assets and source thereof.
"Further the members of all India Services (IFS) are also required to proceed in advance with Rule 16 of All India services (conduct) Rule 1968 read with DoP&T, MOPG&P Government of India's.) No 6(1(2014-EO (PR) dated 22.12.2016 where under every members are required to submit the detailed property returns to the prescribed authority," the circular reads.
It is worthwhile to mention that in the year 2012 the then State Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) G R Sufi in the case titled Dr Raja Muzaffar Bhat V/S FAA / PIO General Administration Department (GAD) had also directed all the IAS and KAS officers to submit the annual property statement on GADs official website. Before the said order was passed some IAS officers had shown resentment to reveal property details under RTI Act and had invoked section 8 wherein they anticipated threat on their lives if the information was revealed. The then CIC G R Sufi had ridiculed the written statements made by some IAS officers which included Ms Tanveer Jehan the then Commissioner Secretary PWD (now retired).
