Officers asked to keep 'secret diary' for corrupt employees
New Delhi: Supervisory officers have been asked to maintain a confidential diary to record instances of alleged corruption about their subordinates and details of action taken on them, the Centre has said.
The move comes after it was noticed that reporting officers do not clarify or categorically mention the integrity of their junior officer while filling Annual Performance Assessment Reports (APARs).
Further, it has also been seen that in the case of reporting a doubt of integrity of an officer, the procedures prescribed for filling up the integrity column in APARs are not being followed appropriately, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.
A copy of the secret note should be sent together with the character roll to the next superior officers who should ensure that the follow-up action is taken with due expedition, it said in an order issued recently to all ministries.
