Assam Police Claims Transparency in Service, Makes Returns Showing Assets Mandatory
GUWAHATI: The declaration of Annual Property Returns is mandatory at the Inspectors and Sub Inspectors level.
As per a statement by Assam police, "This is yet another milestone in the transparency initiatives of Assam Police. We thank Chief Minister (CM) Assam Sarbananda Sonowal and Bhaskar J Mahanta, DGP Assam Police for this historic decision."
Earlier, in a circular issued on October 31, 2020 in this regard,
DGP Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta instructed that all police officials up to the level of an inspector will have to submit returns of their movable and immovable assets to the department annually with immediate effect.
This instruction essentially meant that the police officials will have to submit their returns showing their assets for the year 2020 also.
