Sources, however, said that a staggering 120 officials, many from the senior-most ranks, were yet to comply with the direction.

The defaulters included as many as three dozen IAS officials who were yet to furnish details of their immovable assets.

Frustrated by this failure of the state government's effort to bring in transparency, Chief Secretary Rahul Bhatnagar has now asked all Principal Secretaries to ensure that the "needful is done at all costs by 3 May".

A Personnel Department official said that while it was routine to submit details of movable assets every year, this was for the first time that the details of immovable assets and properties was sought by the state government.

The Chief Secretary has now warned officials against any laxity in this regard and said that any further delay could spell an adverse entry in their character roll and affect their promotions.
