Government officials making official foreign trips will now have to submit, in detail, what outcome their trips achieved. According to a report in The Times of India, officials who undertook foreign trips since 2013-2014 have been asked to submit reports on the outcome of the visits.
 
The government has also created a website for officials to upload information regarding their foreign trips and visits. A deadline of December-end has been set for officials to upload details. 
 
The TOI report further states that the ministry has also been directed to prepare a "rolling plan" for the foreign visits made my officials in the future. A senior government official told the newspaper, "The idea behind the rolling plan is to submit the proposed trips of officials in the next quarter. This can be updated and amended. The government wants foreign trips by officials on govern ment expenditure to be result-oriented."

Another government source told TOI that "In certain cases, it's difficult to get the details of foreign visits by officials, who have already gone back to the states or are retired. But the message has gone to one and all to provide the outcomes of their visits since they must be keeping some details. We are also trying to get the records kept in departments so that some details can be uploaded."
