NEW DELHI:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA Government is eyeing the non-performing assets among babus and has sought an appraisal report from the Secretaries of all ministries on the workforce in their departments as it is contemplating to invoke service rules to get rid of dead wood.

According to sources a letter was recently sent seeking a detailed report on the performance of government servants, who should be retained in service or retired from service in public interest. The government had earlier intimated about the action to be taken under FR 56 (J) and FR 56 (I) of Central Civil Services rules. The cases of babus covered by these rules are to be reviewed every six months before he or she attains the age of 50-55 years. The action will be taken by a Committee of senior officials of the ministry or government department concerned .

Sources, citing a Supreme Court judgment in the case, pointed out that showcause notice need not be issued to any government servant before a notice of retirement is issued to him/ her.

“If a government servant is found ineffective but due to retire in the next one year, the Committee may not consider his or her case,” government sources added.

If there is a report about doubtful integrity of any government servant, he/she will be immediately asked to leave after serving the three months’ mandatory notice period. The damage to public interest, sources argued, could be marginal if an old employee in the last year of service is found ineffective, but the damage may be beyond calculation if he/she were found to be corrupt.
