Central Govt Employees, don't need to file assets declaration in 2016

Central Govt Employees, don't need to file assets declaration in 2016

New Delhi: Central government employees need not to file a declaration of their assets and liabilities this year because the new rules under the Lokpal and Lokayuktas (Amendment) Act, 2016 are not ready yet.

So, the extension of deadline for submission of declaration of assets and liabilities till December 31 has become fruitless.

“The extension was given under the old Act of 2014, which is now redundant…We are in the process of drafting the final proforma which only will be valid,” an official in Ministry of Personnel said.

The Lokpal and Lokayuktas (Amendment) Act, 2016 says, “On and from date of commencement of this Act every public servant shall make a declaration of his assets and liabilities in such form and manner as may be prescribed.” Since the filing rules have not been firmed up, there is no requirement for filing of declarations by central government public servants, he added.

The government had extended the deadline of filing assets declaration for the fifth time since the Act came into force.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) is consulting the law ministry over the final draft of the form for declaration of assets by public servants, so, no fresh deadline fixed yet.

The public servants will now not be required to provide the details of assets of their spouses and other dependents, according to the amendment of the Act, 2016.
