The state government has also made it mandatory for all the IAS officers of the state cadre on deputation to the Centre to submit the details of their assets on the lines of those serving in the state.
The All India Service (Conduct) Rules, 1968, also require IAS, IPS and Indian Forest Service officials, among others, to declare their immovable assets by January 31 every year.
The practice was introduced three years ago by chief minister Nitish Kumar as part of a move to weed out corruption in the state.
To begin with, Kumar declared his assets and asked his ministerial colleagues to follow suit. Later, top IAS and IPS rank officers, including chief secretary and the DGP, were also asked to do so. It was made mandatory to update the information every year. More than 4.5 lakh government employees from Grade I to Grade III, too, have been asked to declare their assets.
