Submission of Assets Statement: Vigilance Commission
November 10, 2012 at 6:06 am #68066
Usually, the employees of Govt. of West Bengal submit their Assets Statement Report as they stood on 1st January each year within 30th April of that year to respective departments.
Now a recent G.O. (Memo No. 2980/V/1E-12/12 dated 05.09.2012) from State Vigilance Commission issued regarding this matter. A status report on submission of ‘Declaration of Assets’ statement for the last three years by the employees and officers is to submitted to the Vigilance Commission within a month. I could not understand the meaning of it.November 10, 2012 at 8:03 am #75222

It may be to have a review over the compliance of G.O. for the last three years and strict action may be taken against the defaulters.November 10, 2012 at 10:34 am #75224

There is no double meaning. Noble objective! RTI Act 2005 is attracted here. There will be honesty and transparency in the employees. The decision is taken by the Govt. to provide corruption-free efficient Governance to the public.
The step was first taken by the Central Govt. in year 2010 to bring to the public notice the IMMOVABLE assets of the Group-A officers only. The strictures were issued by some Central Govt. offices to the effect that the officers who will fail to submit declaration on regular basis will not get vigilance clearance and, their names shall not be considered by DPC for promotion! Many IAS officers have been found very slow to react in this particular exercise as in the opinion the Dept. of Personnel & Training, Govt. of India which issued few reminders to them for strict compliance of the DoPT Order and Conduct Rules! It is now included in the Annual Performance Appraisal Report (formerly ACR) of the Group-A officers in Central Govt. employ.
Now it has percolated to our state govt. in conformity with the action of Central Govt.November 10, 2012 at 4:18 pm #75232
The State Vigilance Commission is working as the watch dog over all the departments of the Government. The circular is just to ensure that those who have not submitted the Declaration of Asstes to their departments are identified and the same is obtained from them. A large number of police personnel who work in Vigilance Commission and make enquiry in to complaints are theirselves thieves and dishonest. They shift there to save and rehabilitate themselves and conceal their ill gotten money from the clutch of so called SVC. An MLA or councillor or panchayat Pradhan or any one who gets the money from the Government exchequer is also a public servant under section 21 of the IPC. But have you ever heard that any Vigilance enquiry is going on against any Minister or MLA or Councillor or Village Panchayat Pradhan etc? State Government has a brain drain and as such unable to make the rules or law. They take all punitive steps from the procedure of Central Government but provide no benefits to its own employee the way the Central Government provides. Benami petitions are outrightly rejected by CVC.But benami petitions rae drafted at SVC against the friends or colleagues and posted from the local post office of Bidhan Nagar and enquiry is started to harass the employees(See the case of Dr.Nazrul Islam IPS). A large number of corrupt officers are flourishing at SVC, courtesy to Home(police) Department and Finance Department.Victims include police personnel, health personnel, PWD personel and WBSEB people.All circulars are drafted by Dhongi Babas of government and circulated in market to enhance the market rate. Afterall inflation is there and no DA to the employees so the SVC is also in crunch.November 12, 2012 at 2:39 pm #75273
Is there any system for teachers of govt aided school to file such statement?November 12, 2012 at 8:01 pm #75282
I have not heard of any such govt. rule for aided/sponsored schools. Govt. employees are required to declare to their respective offices the movable properties (value of which exceeds the prescribed limit) and immovable properties they own either singly or jointly with others at the time of entry into the service. They are also required to take prior permission from/ intimate to the office before purchase or disposal of movable and immovable properties in either single or joint ownership.
