56 IAS officers from Maharashtra cadre have not declared their assets
The reply to an application filed under the Right to Information (RTI) Act has revealed that many officers belonging to Indian Administrative Services (IAS) of Maharashtra cadre have not submitted their asset details to the government.
The reply to the application states that 56 IAS officers out of 294 in the state have not declared their assets in 2012 though under a central directive issued in 2010, it has been made mandatory for every bureaucrat to submit their asset and investment details to the government each year in January. The reply also shows that these 56 IAS officers include four women IAS officers. The reply also states that investment records of the bureaucrats in the state for 2010 and 2011 are not available as they were destroyed in the Mantralaya fire. Also the state government doesn't have the records whether the bureaucrats had declared their assets in 2009 and 2008.
The applicant has now written a letter to the chief minister seeking action against the said officers.
