Bengaluru: The Karnataka government has recently issued an order that its employees will be prohibited from acting in movies or TV serials and writing books.

According to the draft of Karnataka State Civil Services (Conduct) Rules, 2020, the government employees should not act in movies, television serials and publishing books. Also, they should not criticise any policies of the State government, Union government as well as state-run governments.

The government employees should seek the permission of the prescribed authority to write any book or to act in movies and TV serials, as per the order by the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms (DPAR) which was notified on October 27.

The rules stated, “No Government servant shall act in films and television serials or associate himself with any activity related thereto unless permitted by the competent authority in accordance with the instructions in this regard,” as quoted by The Indian Express.

The state government is now seeking objections to draft the notification within 15 days. Also, apart from banning the officials from acting and writing books, the rules also state that the employees should not consume intoxicating drinks and drugs during their duties as well as in public places.

The employees will be banned from taking foreign tours without permission. “No Government servant shall undertake private foreign tour without getting prior permission from the Prescribed Authority. Such request shall be considered as per the rules and instructions governing the sanction of such private foreign tours,” the rules stated.

According to the new rules, government servants should wear decent dresses in the office. If they have uniforms, then they should wear them during working hours.

The rules also prohibit the government employees from giving or taking Anu dowry or demands directly or indirectly from the parents or the guardian of the bride.
