GOVERNMENT OF INDIA DEPARTMENT OF PERSONNEL & TRAINING MINISTRY OF PERSONNEL, PUBLIC GRIEVANCES AND PENSIONS NORTH BLOCK NEW DELHI-110001DO No. 6(1)I20l8-EO(PR)
Dated, the 07 February, 2019Kindly refer to Secretary, DoPT’s letter of even no. dated 04.12.2018 and my DO reminder dated 07.01.2019 regarding online filing of IPR by AS officers in SPARROW platform for the year 2018 (as on 01.01 .2019). 2. As per Rule 16(2) of AIS (Conduct) Rules, 1968, all the members of the lAS were required to submit their lPRs for the year 2018 latest by 31st January, 2019. Though the last date for filling of lPR i.e. 31st January is already over, as per the data available on the SPARROW platform, some officers of your cadre are indicated to have not filed their lPRs for 2018. A list of such officers is enclosed for ready reference. It may be noted that in addition to online filing of IPR in SPARROW, option to physically upload the IPR in the platform was also made available for the officers in case of non-availability of DSC/eSign. Therefore, technically there should not have been any problems/issues which may have hindered the officers in filing their lPRs online. 3. In the aforementioned letters, it was clearly brought out that the officers may be advised that vigilance clearance to AS officers for their inclusion in the offer list, empanelment, any deputation for which Central Government clearance is necessary including deputation under Rule 6(1) and Rule 6(2)(ii) of the AIS (Cadre) Rules, appointment to sensitive posts, assignment to training programmes (except mandatory training), premature repatriation to the Cadre etc. is denied in case of non-submission of IPR. 4. request you to impress upon the officers that failure on the part of the members of the service to comply with the requirements of the aforesaid rules constitutes good and sufficient reason for institution of disciplinary proceedings against them in terms of DoP&T OM No. 11017/74/93-AIS(l!I) dated 04.01.1994.
Yours sincerely, (P.K.Tirupathi)Copy to: (i) Additional Secretary, UT, MHA, North Block, New Delhi – for taking similar action in respect of the AGMUT cadre officers, please (ii) NIC, DoPT for uploading the letter in the Department’s website. Source: DoPT
