Three hundred forty nine IAS officers have not yet submitted their Annual Immovable Property Returns (IPR) for the year 2020 in the stipulated time limit. This was disclosed by the Department-related Parliamentary Standing Committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, Law and Justice.

The committee recommended the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) and the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) to increase surveillance on the activities of such erring officials. The committee also recommends the DoPT to furnish the stringent measures that can be taken against IAS Officers who fail to file IPRs within the stipulated time limit.
