No applicant would henceforth be required to file affidavits with the Haryana government departments or organisations for delivery of services except in those cases where affidavit was required by the law or under the statutory rules.

Stating that only a self-declaration would be accepted in other cases, an official spokesman said the applications forms would be drafted so as to contain an undertaking or declaration by the applicant that the facts stated in the application were correct to the best of his or her knowledge belief and that nothing had been concealed therein. In case of any concealment or misrepresentation, legal action would be taken against the culprits under various sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC), he added.

The spokesman said all the officials concerned had been asked to ensure strict compliance of these instructions and send a compliance report to the effect that a self-declaration was being taken by them from the applicant instead of affidavits, he said.
