Great Move by Govt to weed out corrupt officials
According to an order issued by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), all ministries and government departments will have to conduct a quarterly review of the officials, in order to ascertain who among them need to be prematurely retired from service. The age of retirement in government jobs is 58 years.
“In order to bring in better clarity to the existing instructions and enable uniform implementation, an effort has been made to review, consolidate and reiterate the guidelines so far issued on the subject at one place,” the DoPT communication issued on 28 August said.
“The register of the government servants who are due to attain the age of 50/55 years or to complete 30 years of service, has to be maintained,” added the order.
The order further said the register maintained by each ministry will have to be reviewed at the beginning of every quarter by a senior official of the ministry or department. As such, a review would be mandatory for the January-March, April-June, July-September and October-December periods. more
