Existing norms allow confidential reports and performance appraisal reports of such bureaucrats to be destroyed two years after their death or retirement. The rules also allow IAS, IPS and IFoS officers to get their appraisals after two years of retirement, which is the normal period of retention for bureaucrats and police officials.
A government order, released by the Department of Personnel and Training, stated that the current "action (being taken) to destroy such confidential reports and performance appraisals" is being done as per the rules and guidelines.
