NEW DELHI: Employees of autonomous institutions like central universities and AIIMS will come under government scanner now which will keep track of their performance.

Also, a Group C government servant, who has crossed the age of 55, can be retired prematurely under the rule.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) today asked all administrative ministries to ensure that autonomous institutions have adopted the provisions of FR 56 (j) and that they are strictly followed.

In case where the autonomous institutions have similar provisions in their rule books, the administrative ministry may ensure that they are followed in letter and spirit, it said.

In case there is no such provisions exist in regulations governing their working, the administrative ministry may ensure that the action is taken to put in place such rules as may be necessary, the DoPT said in a communique to all central government secretaries.
