The Centre has banned retired officials from the intelligence or security-related organisations from publishing any information about their former departments without clearance from the head of the organisation. The retired officials will have to sign an undertaking that they will not publish information without clearance. Their pension could be withheld or withdrawn, fully or partially, if they do not comply with the government order. The government’s order is likely to affect retired officials who write columns for newspapers as well as books about their former organisations.
