The Narendra Modi government has notified an amendment to the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972, prohibiting retired intelligence or security officers from communicating to the media or publishing a book or any other document on related subjects that come within the “domain” of the organisations – without prior clearance.

Any violation of the new guideline could put a question mark over the retired officer’s pension.

“No government servant, who has worked in any intelligence or security-related organisation shall make any publication after retirement without prior clearance from the head of the organisation,” the statement by Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions read.
