Subject: Sanction for acquisition of immovable/movable properties.
It has been noticed of late that requests are being received for intimation to/sanction of the competent authority regarding acquisition of immovable/movable properties without providing full details of the source of fund for such acquisitions. In many cases, the source of fund are intimated as Streedhan, gifts, inherited etc without providing any supporting documents for such accumulation of wealth. In the absence of complete details it becomes difficult to record the transaction. The matter has been viewed with great concern.
2. It may be noted that even though CCS (Conduct) Rules states that rules relating to transactions entered into by members of family including Streedhan, gifts, inheritance etc. is to be implemented liberally to avoid a detailed probe into the private affairs of the Government servants or their relatives, cases in which suspicious circumstances exists should be investigated with firmness and speed. Further, CVC guidelines on the subject also states that acceptance of such intimations does not confer any immunity from investigations at a later stage should the need arise.
3. In view of the above, it is advisable to furnish all relevant details regarding the source of income/fund while fonNarding requests for sanction of the competent authority along with necessary supporting documents in order to facilitate early disposal of cases.
4. Receipt of this circular may be acknowledged and given widest circulation.
