Responding to the reports that many bureaucrats are still delaying filing details of both their movable and immovable property returns with the government, the Prime Minister office said that the promotions of the delaying officers will be withheld and erring officers will be kept out of sensitive ministries as well.
The message was conveyed to the key central ministries by the Prime Minister Office.
The sensitive ministries like Home and Defence are keenly under scanner and the officials have been made clear to file their property details as well.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi aims at transparency and it is being made clear to all the top officials that anybody delaying to file the details will not be considered for their next promotion.
The government aims at sidelining the erring officers from sensitive ministries in order to promote transparency.
