In a fresh directive to his ministers, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has asked them to declare by 31 March every year, their assets and property.
An official said on Tuesday that the Chief Minister had also warned the ministers against any laxity in this regard.
The ministers in the Bharatiya Janata Party government have also been told to maintain distance from contractors and business entities and have been barred from accepting any gift costing more than Rs 5,000.
They have also been asked to refrain from staying in luxurious properties and attending parties and dinners.
Both during personal visits and official tours, the ministers have been instructed to stay in government Circuit House and not accept any favours from anyone.
Ever since Adityanath took charge of Uttar Pradesh in March, he has been advising ministers and officials to cut expenses.
