New Delhi: The performance appraisal reports of IAS and IPS officers, who have retired two years ago, will be destroyed by the Centre.
It has asked officers of all India services — Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and Indian Forest Service (IFoS) — to make a request to the central government in case they want to have a copy of their performance reports.
Existing norms allow confidential rolls of members of all-India services to be destroyed two years after their death or retirement.
The rules also provide that Confidential Reports (CRs) or Performance Appraisal Reports (PARs) of such bureaucrats can be given to them after the normal period of retention of two years is over from the date of their retirement.
“Action is accordingly being taken for destroying such CRs/PARs,” an order issued by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.
Officers who wish to obtain their dossiers may send their requests to the Ministry till June 14, 2017, the order said.
