Office Memorandum

Subject: Filling of Immovable Property Return by Officers of ITS Group ‘A’ and TES Group ‘B’ for the year ending 2022.

In accordance with Rule 18 (1) of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964, every Government servant holding a Group ‘A’ or ‘B’ post is required to submit an annual return giving full particulars regarding the Immovable property inherited by him or owned or acquired by him or held by him on lease or mortgage either in his own name or in the name of any member of his family or in the name of any other person.

2. Further, As per para 2 of DOPT OM No. 11013/12/93-Estt. (A) dated 24.01.1994 which states:

“It has, however, been noticed that these returns are not submitted in time in many cases. Ministries/Departments are, therefore, requested to ensure that these returns are submitted by all Group ‘A’ and ‘B’ officers under their control in respect of every calendar year by 31st January of the next year. It may be impressed upon them that failure on the part of a Government servant to comply with the requirement of the aforesaid rule can form good and sufficient reason for instituting disciplinary proceedings against him. Strict action may be taken against employees who fail to submit the returns in time or furnish wrong information”.

3. Functionality of online declaration of Immovable Property Return (IPR) through e-office lite i.e. SPARROW Portal for the year ending 31.12.2022 would
be operational w.e.f. 01.01.2023 to 31.01.2023. IPR must be filed by ITS Group ‘A’ and TES Group ‘B’ officers only through SPARROW portal irrespective of the post held/place of posting.
