Lokpal: Deadline to file assets details extended till Oct 15

The Centre has extended till October 15 the deadline for central government employees to file the details of their assets and liabilities, along with that of their spouses and dependent children, as mandated under the Lokpal Act. 

The last date for filing such returns was April 30. The date has now been extended till October 15, 2015, an order issued by Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said. 

This is third such extension of dates for submitting the returns by employees. 

As per rules, notified under the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act, every public servant shall file declaration, information and annual returns pertaining to his assets and liabilities as on March 31 every year or on or before July 31 of that year. 

For 2014, the last date for filing returns was September 15, which was later extended to December-end, then till April 30, and now up to October 15, 2015. 

The declarations under the Lokpal Act are in addition to similar ones filed by the employees under various services rules. 

All Group A, B and C employees are supposed to file a declaration under the new rules. 

Employees need to give details like cash in hand, bank deposits, investment in bonds, debentures, shares and units in companies or mutual funds, insurance policies, provident fund, personal loans and advance given to any person or entity, among others. 

"All ministries or departments and cadre controlling authorities are requested to kindly issue orders towards ensuring compliance with the revised rules by all officers and staff in the respective ministry, department, organisation or PSUs under their control, within the revised time limit," the DoPT order said.
