Employees over the age of 50 will be reviewed every three months. Mandatory retirement if an employee is performing poorly
The Narendra Modi government has taken strict action to curb corruption and corruption in the government. If the performance of officers above the age of 60 years or those who have been in government service for 30 years is found to be poor, they will be compulsorily retired in the public interest.
The Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions has issued detailed guidelines in this regard on 3 August. And every ministry and department of the Central Government has been asked to implement it strictly with immediate effect.
According to the published guidelines, government officials who are over 60 years of age as well as those who have been in the service for 30 years will have to keep a record of their performance.
The departments have been asked to form a special committee to review the record. The committee will review the records every three months and if the officer’s performance is found to be poor, he will be retired prematurely.
The memorandum of the Department of Personnel and Training states that the government has the right to retire any employee or officer if required in the public interest under Fundamental Rights 56 (J), 56 (L) or Pension Rules 48 (1) (B).
The performance of those employees and officers will be checked by senior officers The government had earlier this year signaled that it would crack down on non-performing and under performing employees. Experts believe that the decision to give compulsory retirement was taken on the basis of a review of performance, given that the government receives frequent complaints about the lax policy of government employees and the government itself goes through this experience.
