(AGAINST DECLARING THE ASSETS AND LIABILITIES)
The 6th Federal Council meeting of the National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations, held at Cochin on 18th and 19th September 2014 deliberated on the latest order of the Department of Personnel & Training (DOP&T) which stipulates that, all the Central Govt. employees, have to declare their assets and liabilities, both movable and immovable, as well as their spouses and dependents latest by 15th December 2014. All these informations would be put up by the respective ministries on their website accessible to everyone.
It has been reported in the meeting that a large number of Central Govt. Employees have expressed their fear that putting up details of movable assets such as jewellery and cash in hand and bank would pose a security threat to them and their dependents, their children will be vulnerable to kidnapping and ransom demands.
Further, the Government employees would have accumulated wealth such as gift from parents, property from grandparents, wife-side property, or children’s contribution etc. Putting this information in the public domain would leave them and their family members vulnerable.
