The Punjab government personnel department has issue a letter to all the heads of the department, divisional commissioners, registrar of Punjab and Haryana High court, all district and session judges, all deputy commissioners and all sub divisional magistrates to furnish details on officials who have permanent residency abroad, going / gone abroad and who are working in foreign countries despite remaining in government job, within one week.
The state government had recently sacked a deputy director of the civil supplies department for concealing the fact that he had acquired permanent residency in Canada 15 years back.
As per available information, few years back the Vigilance Bureau had started this exercise and submitted a report to the government that more than hundred gazetted and non-gazetted officers had obtained PR or Green Card in violation of service rules. However, no action was taken then.
